Jardin du Monde
“Jardin Du Monde” is my dreamlike homage to the impressionists via aa universal theme, The water worlds in the galaxy of stars. Hydrogen is the most plentiful element in the universe. It is the basis for oxygen to connect and create the elixir of life. With brush and palette knife, I have layer upon layer of watery worlds that have created a universal garden of flowers, trees and planets.
“Debussy admired his friend, poet Paul Verlaine’s whose poem “Clair de Lune” (Moonlight) provided the inspiration for Debussy’s piano masterpiece of the same name (1890). Verlaine uses the adjectives “sad and beautiful” to describe the moonlight in his poem. Debussy is reported to have said, “Music is the space between notes,” and you hear that sentiment in the openness between the first notes in the piece.
