Collection of the artist

A modular and interactive piece built with five clusters of six-color panels. Each 6-panel painting visually mirrors a corresponding musical motif in Sidney Bechet’s rendition of Blues in the Air, and is an autonomous work of art. The piece can be recomposed with a variety of components and compositions, much like the improvisational way that the blues is played.
