The Seasons (after Antonio Vivaldi), 2010-2014
The Seasons (after Antonio Vivaldi) are a series of painting made between 2011-2013. I became interested in creating this series after listening to an interview and recording of Gil Shaham describing his understanding of the musical composition. I was interested in how Vivaldi composed certain musical passages so they become lyrical in describing elements of the seasons. I attempted to do the same with my own painting process and color. They were made out of sequence with one another: Spring, Winter, Fall, Summer, however the proper viewing order is Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter.
