Quote:

These paintings are inspired by the music of Miles Davis. They are ‘visual improvisations’ on the tracks ‘Blue in Green’ and ‘All Blues’ from his 1959 album Kind of Blue. I painted these back in 2015, at which point I was trying to become more familiar with the music of Miles Davis. I had heard ‘Blue in Green’ and ‘All Blues’ several times before but had never consciously listened to them. As a musician, one is often occupied with creating an experience for the listener, and we as listeners are given a unique and personal experience of that music which in turn can inspire creation in a different form. These paintings are a visual reaction to my first engaged experience with those two tracks.
