We live in an age where everything is colorful and fast, with people constantly being bombarded with an overwhelming amount of images, sensations and information. It is not the purpose of the artist to compete with this. In my work, I find that by reducing the visual means, the message gets stronger.
In the early 80's I tried to paint "monochromatically," meaning to limit my paintings to one color only, mainly blue. To my surprise, I found that there is a whole universe of different blues and within this limited palette you can be more subtle and intense and actually quite "colorful." Color is very powerful; it has a deep impact on one's subconscious, one's mood and emotions. And so, in this production, I have decided to mirror onstage what I do with my paintings.
