centre d'art E.K. Voland, Montreal
June 1 - 5, 2017
This project began with a clear image in mind, and music played in studio that connected with it. Mingus's work is complex, with musical themes layering and overlapping, evolving. The image I wanted to portray, a spread of ferns in the woods with periwinkle planted by my grandmother in the 1960s, now a thick carpet behind her cottage. Texture blends the natural and introduced plant life, mingles the sunlight rays and shadows, echoing, I hope, the sounds Mingus threads so cleverly into an organized rich weaving of textured joy.
