MIXED MEDIA graphics
The Musicians series rendered in a mixed technique combine the possibilities of watercolor, ink and acrylic. The space created by multiple overlays of translucent layers is perceived as moving like music itself. Somewhere a thin pencil detail shines through; somewhere there is a thickening and compaction of light, somewhere the accent of dark colors is enhanced like a bass chord.
Looking at these works, one is so immersed in the atmosphere of a concert that it seems that one begins hearing sounds. This is not some abstract concert; rather it is a very personal and quite concrete experience. Hence, the authenticity of the experience and the accuracy of its transmission. There is no doubt that this is Oriental music with its complex and intricate melodics – as multi-layered as the surface of the paintings.
