The Colour of Music
Residency and Exhibitions
While Artist in Residence at St George's Arts in Esher, I used my time exploring the relationship between art and music by inviting local instrumentalists to come and rehearse while I did studies of them. After doing nearly 200 drawings of the musicians, I created an installation of life-sized ink drawings on the gallery walls, as well as a series of paintings which related music to colour.
At the closing event, the baritone Christopher Goldsack sang Poulenc's 'The Work of the Artist', a series of songs based on Paul Eluard's poems about seven C20th artists.
