orange and snow

there is a swish-squeak and
muffled thump as you
gain the cadence
and begin
to stroll and

with all the 
natural beauty
in peril
i get so 
miserable that 
I have to drink outside
while painting

at -15º c
vapour rises
from les isles
d ' ecos
and that 
cheers me up

art as a documentary
of a document?

that which 
would reward,
by intention
an imagination

how are the crystals
from deep in the earth
any different than the 

new fallen snow

what does it look like when 
a gene sequence "mutates"?

as an example of the baggage of this language

66 x 80 inches, oil on canvas

 50 x 72 in.

 electoral reform?  how is murder justified ?

if we elect government 
who hold a fundamental belief
 that the "end times" are inevitable
then is destroying the planet
doing god's will or 
our choice?

the play

"a conversations without words"

i.e. between paintings
paintings to music -music to dance

painter sitting in a studio chair, looking

two walls 45º to stage

gets up and brings in another painting

and sits

gets up turns off the lights

the dancers facilitate the conversation between paintings/ 
curating by hanging sequences of paintings so
the studio becomes an exhibition
and like Musorski
 parts are assigned

the artist has exited in painting attire to 
reemerge in opening gear

walls spin -studio wall photo-repro to neutral
tables spin- from paint to wine & cheese

scene 2

dancers in black enter and spin the walls/tables into tidiness
and curate a group

music assigned to individual paintings 
overlays and harmonized into
the next painting

the dancers, having arranged a good bunch
stand together looking at the MV painting horizontal

go turn it on its end
with a new rhythm
they divid into the black and white keys
into two different time signatures
while two different key signatures merge
with winter forest sounds
as a simultaneous emergence of
deer and whild turkeys
in sun set silloette on
the forest edge

and skipping double dutch
as a sound first and
break into different parts

"the slideshow" 
connects similarities between the forest and the paintings
on two screens
