Étude Op. 1 No. 1
"The Étude Op.1, No. 1-4 is the latest series in an artistic inquiry into synesthetic, improvisational form.
Created with graphite on paper, Étude Op. 1 began as a series of deliberately bare drawings, exploring a way of seeing, interpreting, reinterpreting, experiencing, and contextualizing my immediate personal, physical, and auditory experience. Étude Op. 1, and my drawing to date, embraces the play between control and improvisation, intricate yet fluid gestures, balance and chaos.
Each No. in Opus 1 is a meditation on sound, the experience of music, impulses and ruminations of a personal nature, captured on a tactile canvas."
