“Chromatic Water Theory III: Strum”

Medium: Acrylic on Canvas
Size: 18″ x 36″
Year: 2017


Sound upon sound, wave upon wave, a simple strum of a stringed instrument produces something that combines to a beautiful note. Sound is a wave after all, watch what happens when multiple waves collide, the result is usually something far beyond the sum of the parts. A synergy of moving water, a liquid chord in the key of H2O.

This painting is another reminder that every song has its roots in water.

This series was created live during the Redwood Coast Music Festival inside the Morris Graves Museum of Art. The overall concept of the series was to explore the connections between music and water, through a set of shared geometric structures.
