A pictures silence

1 Comment

Even though an image may conjure up an array of experience, the image itself is silent. This is interesting considering nearly all the work I make is made listening to the music or in some kind of busy, social environment. The sound I listen to really does enhance emotion, as well I find my concentration is heightened, the outside world melts away, and I think this is reflected in my output. I often wonder what the image conjures in the mind of the viewer, and what sounds they may hear even though the image is silent.

Buddhabear a painting that is based on an actual Grizzly encounter I experienced outside an electronica festival in BC, in a tutu of course. Do you hear the bear? The forest? The hum of a hummingbird?

The painting I made at the festival, Entheos, where I had my Grizzly encounter, I painted nearly 3 days straight, it morphed hundreds of times before ending at this stage, I gifted it to the land owner in exchange for the bear medicine I received there.
