Art Description

Painting: Oil, Chalk, Charcoal, Priming White on Other.

Last year I started a series of works attempting to depict some Frank Zappa guitar solos. That was slow working and hard working, too. I was lucky to escape to China for the end of the season.

Coming back, all had changed. The musical structures became the housing of memories of the Lao Shan mountains resulting in works of transcendence.

In his painting, musical structures of a guitar solo by Zappa, performed in St. Etienne, house a view from Lao Shan, passing through burning eyes and dry wildlife around Taiqing Gong to the almost unseen Yellow Sea. It by this acquires a spiritual, Taoist dimension.

Just by playing with words I allways called it Tian Shan, Celestial Mountains.

The work is performed on MDF and by this heavy by weight. It needs a solid wall and two well fixed screw to hang. It comes in a protective crate made by the author.

The work has passed it's half-year drying period. The anthracite area top - one third left still has some haptic stickiness, that may remain for longer. This is due to the experimental use of a painting agent and doesn't affect visual quality or the possibility of dust removal.
