Destination Moon Time Lapse Video

Last Saturday I participated in a multi-media event hosted by Destination Moon at the vast 8000 sq/ft LightSpace Studios. People who attended danced to live music from 3 different bands and a DJ, engaged with sculpture, projection mapping, and 2-D paintings curated by OXHEART.

I was thrilled to display some of my large scale sumi ink paintings, in an amazingly appropriate setting. It is a rare occasion when my large scale works get to be seen in an environment where they can be appreciated from a far distance as well as up close.

“Bits & Beans” 72 x 108″ complimented the white leather couch that it hung above and interacted well with “Womb” a hanging sculpture by Andrea Garcia.

“The Crew of the Fallen Crown” 4 x 13′ is my visual interpretation of the novel “Diary” by Chuck Palahniuk. This painting on Arches watercolor paper hung 25′ high on a Cyclorama wall, a self propelled scissor lift was used to install this painting.

“Beans & Breasts” 100 x 72″ hung vertically below “The Crew of the Fallen Crown” and was a popular photographic backdrop for attendies and participants alike. In fact, the band EMEFE began there set in front of this painting and played the better part of there opening song in front of it before marching onto the music stage.

The event was also the debut of my new limited edition serigraphs “Derriere, Pink” and “Derriere, Black” they measure 14 x 14″ and sell for $50 each unframed. I displayed my previous set of Serigraphs: “Face” & “Breast” alongside the new “Derriere” set.

I spent the better part of the evening painting live on a 5 x 6′ piece of paper I taped to the floor. I enjoy and have always been inspired by music. I like to make brush marks to the beats and rhythms of music. I let the music lead me in what I consider a Stream of Consciousness style of painting. The subject matter varies from parts of the human body, to land and city-scapes, mixed with a reoccurring theme of coffee beans. The 3 bands had very different sounds and energy which I think is very evident in the painting that I made. People seem to enjoy watching the creative process and I like the immediate feedback I get while performing a live painting. I was pleased with the results however the painting will need more work before I can consider it a finished painting.
