Stamford, CT - The public is invited to a closing celebration of “ANOTHER VIEW”, a solo exhibition of recent paintings by Greenwich artist, Paul G. Larson.
A closing celebration for the current exhibition at the Loft Artists Gallery, Paul Larson’s “Another View” will be held on Saturday March 16, 2013 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm at the gallery. Singer/songwriter Kathy Muir will be performing for the first time in public her new song “Seattle Mornin” at approximately 5:00 pm. Also known as “The Painter,” the hauntingly beautiful song was the inspiration for Larson’s new painting “A Ghost in Reverie”. The painting is featured in Muir’s soon to be released music video of the song produced by LA film-maker Markus Innocenti. An unveiling of the painting will also take place at this event. The exhibition closes the following day.
Searching for eight months for a painter ‘with an edge’ with whom she could collaborate to bring visual representation to a song she had written and co-produced, her mission to find a painter of cubist influences whose work would capture her imagination had proven unsuccessful. Finally, attending the LAA’s yearly ‘Open Studios’ in November 2012 she walked into Larson’s studio.
Much of Muir’s music explores the relationships between art, artists and nature. She’s intrigued by the idea that individual artists can work within the same themes, each contributing a piece to a project that will make the whole grander and more expressive. Her vision for ‘Seattle Mornin’ (The Painter) was to film an artist’s process of creating a painting, based on the song itself.
Muir explained her concept to director Markus Innocenti, about how, as the song unveiled, so too would the painting. A filmmaker, equally at home with music and images, and a music video director from the early years of MTV Innocenti has worked with Bob Dylan, Annie Lennox, Aretha Franklin, and Jimmy Page. Innocenti became intrigued by the idea and recorded the creation of the painting from genesis to completion, integrating the images into the final music video.
