“Live, Light Performance Painting.”

In a few weeks time I am embarking some exciting collaborative and intimate performances in London, Oxford and Newcastle. Some of these will be an exciting  collaboration with the Centre of Visual Music on some Salon evenings . These performances will focus on light and the ephemeral quality of paint, and the capturing of time and resonate with the collection of films being shown, including a rare film by Jordan Belson.

My recent performances have ¬†concentrated upon the voice together with painting, and upon the raw visceral vulnerability and the element of power created through this. A while ago now I met the Philosopher and writer Jonathan Ree who wrote a great book while ago now called “I See a Voice” which looked at the many layered phenomenon of the voice. It is a great book and I have been re reading this in connection with this upcoming work. There have been some great exhibitions of late, my personal favourite lately being a showing at the Barbican of Ragnar Kjartansson who ¬†heroically navigated a dodgy connection Skype talk with Carollee Schneeman I experienced at a showing of her work in Reykjavik of which I was involved with last year.
