Painting: Acrylic, Oil on Wood.
The Joy of Motion is my favorite piece from the ongoing Procession series, a tribute series influenced by the African American painter Norman Lewis. This particular piece is inspired by the Animals As Leaders album of the same title. Led by Nigerian American Tosin Abasi's guitar virtuoso heroics, this particular Animals As Leaders album is my favorite driving music. With this painting I wanted evoke the same powerful, yet fluid dynamism of their music. After creating the central form through organic, improvised gestures, I built the surrounding chromatic atmosphere and textures towards a more solid, complete structure.
