IntoxiKA Series

“IntoxiKA” is a music and visual art collaboration. Thomas MacKay, mallet percussionist with the group IntoxiKA in Hawaii, asked whether I’d paint to the compositions on their debut CD https://intoxika808.com/music. Their music reignites exotica and takes the listener on a journey back to 1950’s era Oahu, Hawaii when tiki ruled the airwaves and tiki bars were the all the rage. Tom and I collaborated back in the 90’s as half of the percussion and piano team in Bartok’s Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion at the University of North Dakota, where he was a percussion student and I was on the piano faculty.  For the current project, I created a series of seven paintings on 18" wood rounds, using the music and titles of the CD tracks as inspiration. While listening to IntoxiKA, I chose my colors, mixed my paints and then poured while videotaping the creation. I enjoyed bringing music and art together while editing the videos, sometimes synching the pouring process with the music.

 

I chose circular wood as my “canvas”. Hawaiians believe a closed circle represents a seamless life - one that has no beginning or end.

I love the endless possibilities a round canvas offers while creating fluid art. The versatile pieces can be used in multiple ways:

1) Wall art

2) Lazy Susan (add a turntable base)

3) Serving tray (add handles) – great for ottomans!

4) Hanger hook (add drawer pulls to hang items on)

5) Table top (add legs)
