Autumn 2014 | Works on Paper + One on Canvas

Been thinking a lot lately of our trip, a few years ago, to le pays Dogon in Central Mali--the names and colors of West Africa, the dust and the dirt. I love things to be dirty.

G. Lekeu

Guillaume Lekeu is not a particularly well-known composer but I listen to his music often, especially while working. The sound of his work effects the  choices I make while painting. Lekeu had a short life; he died one day after his twenty-fourth birthday from ingesting contaminated sorbet. This book is meant to be an hommage. While hand-painted, or perhaps more correctly hand-stenciled, it was done as a multiple; there are ten copies. The page size is approximately 11" x 7.25" and the paper is Stonehedge. 32 pages. The binding is by John Demmeritt.
