This is my 2017 Birthday painting: So What. This artwork theme comes from Miles Davis album Kind of Blue. I have linked a live version of this music. This early television video of Miles Davis is strangely different from how it would be done now. Today, everything needs to be short, not so deep, and in the moment to not lose the audience’s attention. Back in 1959 that moment lasted for over nine minutes:
So What, consists of 9 canvases for a length 70 inches. The largest canvases are only eight by ten inches. I am looking at this artwork to be a directional changed. Once again, I am on the move with the inspiration being Jackson Pollock and his abstract painting Blue Poles.
