Notes On A Page
Notes on a page…
A visceral attraction and deep mystery from the age of 7,
how these blacks dots and markings control sound and rhythm
and how they move me - my feet, my body, my heart -
make my soul sing.
Lines and color on a page…
Ruben’s women, Van Gogh’s Starry Nights, Chagall’s Crucifixion - the mystery of beauty
Three-dimensional shape, line and color of Disney Princess clothes;
The ruff and cuff,
petticoat and pantaloon,
gowns and jackets in layers
on the canvases of countless figures, art books, museum mannequins;
Eye-Candy and inspiration for character revelation.
Words on a page…
Like passwords to great escapes,
with eye-candy costumes that reveal their characters,
sometimes featuring music from some
notes on a page.
