I will be performing in the next week with Lubomyr Melnyk in Brussels, London and Berlin. I created the album cover for his acclaimed album “Corollaries.”
Any opportunity to see Lubomyr perform would be an amazingly rewarding occasion. When I was asked to perform with him on stage, literally feet away from the source that had been the impetus for these works, I was interested to say the least. I have always been skeptical of the “stage painter,” yet when I was asked to perform with Lubomyr I shed any pretentions about what an “artist” does. I listen to this music in my studio all the time, why would I not take Erased Tapes (Lubomyr’s record label) up on the offer to have it performed live while I make the work? I could find no compelling reason not to.
I will be creating three 48 x 96 works, one in each location. They will be similar to the work that was created for the album cover (sumi on porcelain coated steel).
