This painting was created as a study for a collaborative work with DJ Sonora. She invited me to paint live in her series Cosmic Lullaby. We hoped to soothe our locked-down audience with downtempo beats and painting performance during the pandemic. Due to public health orders, the visual and performing arts had come to a complete halt. I dimmed the studio lights and projected an abstract animation onto my canvas to create both the study and the final work. I painted the projection abstractly from representation and intuitively, expressing both the music and the projection. Beautiful recordings of Sonora's music filled my studio. Final touches were done under normal lighting. For the final work, we both performed from our home studios, recording while screening live across a channels such as Facebook, YouTube and Twitch. Recording was shared for 24 hours following. The live, shared experience was our focus.
