Art Description

Drawing: Ink and Paper on Wood.

"Applause", 2015, pen and ink with collage on fiberboard, 12 inches wide by 16 inches tall (30 x 40 cm).

This piece is about performance and the response to performance. As a visual artist, my need for feedback is no different from that of a musician or a stand-up comedian -- we are all exposing ourselves to public view and criticism, and we all hope for applause.

(The music, by the way, is from Mozart, the Clarinet Concerto in A Major, which I played in a previous stage in my life.)

Note: These pieces owe a nod of thanks to Italian photographer Tina Modotti (1896-1942) who also explored the expressive potential of the image of the human hand.
