Correspondence


About the Performance Painting

For this performance Amit and I discussed at length the programme for me to work with. During the performance I completed 7 pieces, 4 of them on Perspex facing the Audience. I also used projections of Indian, American and British Flags which I had painted for a commission about 5 years ago, these set the visual tone for each piece reflecting the main theme of Indian music meeting western. In the first half I worked freely interpreting colour, gesture and texture as I saw it happening with the music, adopting a method I had used previously at Ronnie Scotts a few years ago. In the Second I used elements of line, tracing the sound of Amit’s voice, and also writing a type of unknown script, having in my mind Rembrandts painting Belshazzar’s Feast where an unknown script appears on the wall infront of the subjects.
