I have always loved music. In my studio, when I’m not listening to Bob Dylan (perhaps the artist who has most influenced me), Miles Davis or John Coltrane are often playing in the background. The element of jazz that delights me most is the spontaneity, the way the musicians communicate with each other through their instruments, making space for one another, building an invisible and intricate web of connection.
The beauty of improvisation, to me, is perfectly embodied by a street musician playing the music that comes to him and the passerby who is moved to spontaneous dance. That scene captures the magic of responding to the moment with our hearts.
I believe that when we choose a piece of artwork, it is because something beacons our eyes and hearts and, without thinking too much about it, we fall in love.
