Melody for the Primordial by jasinski Melody for the Primordial by jasinski
Music is the most abstract of the arts. It rides an unfiltered highway straight to the center of our emotional selves; no language to process, no visual representation to decipher. For this reason music can be more impactful than any other creative art.

This piece really evolved in the process of making it. I started with the sketch of the violinist but I had planned a more rendered background. I wanted to capture the frenetic energy I sense in Shostakovich or Bartok's string quartet work. Out came the palette knives, on went the crazy colors, sand paper, scratching off paint, then adding more layers. Finally the dragonflies arrived.

Acrylic on wood panel. 16x16 inches.
"Melody" is showing at Dorothy Circus Gallery in February 2012.

Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything; right?
I make music & I have an audiophile device called The Dragonfly.
Let there be Music.
