Art Meets Music -SENSORIA 2013

Our evening at Bank Street Arts was a wonderful experience . Jim Ghedi played music from his “Satori ” album , while I “interpreted his music on canvas. The audience  paid us huge respect both during and after the performance . A real thrill and honor.

THEY SAID:

“Jim Ghedi ‘s music is transformational and Keith How‘s paintings make that transformation visible. Fantastic shared experience at Bank Arts tonight as part of Sensoria!”

The inspiration for these paintings finds me seeking to break free of former ideas and concepts . “ Miles Beyond “ (2) was a breakthrough . Inspired by the space and freedom found in the intricate music I discovered the “zen calligraphy” that echoes through nature . Branches , star clusters, bird flight , winding rivers and horizons , leaf and stalk shapes. They are all around but we often miss their beauty and message.
