Susannah Israel: In Concert
The solo exhibition "Susannah Israel: In Concert" includes a chorus, two soloists, and an audience, The exhibition was was scheduled to be shown at the November 2019 Oakland Art Murmur.
The full installation, the concept and the evolution of the grouped pieces is now a book in progress: In Concert, and is a part of the series Sources & Synthesis.
My inspirations are broad: a beautiful child prodigy with a cello; Carl Van Vechten, beating his fist on the knee of an adjacent concertgoer, at the Paris Rite of Spring premier; a one-hundred year-old California succulent garden; the discipline and focus demanded of us by each of the muses.
These were among my thoughts as I was sculpting the pieces. Detailed views of each of the evolving works are included in the book, to help tell the story.
