Aria Stone Corridors Works On Paper 2010

I thought I would share with you what I did over the holidays to keep my sanity. I stayed at home doing studies on paper in between my other work commitments. Works on paper inspired by the trees at Lake Mokoan and song inspired by the beautiful people who plant corridors of trees to protect the small birds and animals.The song was written during my time spent at Benalla last year with Field Studies and was recorded at home.

    • Thanks Vanessa. I was deeply moved by the environment at Lake Mokoan and meeting the guys that have devoted their time and efforts to planting corridors. They manage to recruit hundreds of volunteers to plant kilometers of seedlings in the Benalla area. The studies were just playful expressions drawn from my experience.

  4. i like your paintings aria, the combination of painterly abstract elements and the odd figurative bits. the accompaniment also.
    i’m wondering whether as a musician you think about the structures of music, timing, intervals etc and these elements in your work? just wondering as i find those aspects of ‘sound’ and the infinite variations relevant to painting language.

    • Thanks for your comments Liz. I am very much interested in the relationship between painting and music. That is one reason I enjoyed Victor Woten’s book ‘The Music Lesson’. All the elements he mentioned can also be translated into painting language.
