San Francisco International Art Salon
June 22, 2019
On Saturday, June 22nd, 2019, I live painted on the iPad at the San Francisco International Art Salon and Fashion Show. The first segment of my iPad painting was in collaboration with modern dance choreographer Mariana Sobral and her eMotion Arts Dance Co. dancers. The piece she choreographed, titled Je Suis la Femme, was inspired by the famous painting by Botticelli “The Birth of Venus” (which is why that served as the canvas), and was a celebration of the feminine. It was performed to the magnificent and beautiful musical accompaniment of Bay Area cellist Hallie Marshall-Pridham playing Bach Cello Suite No. 1 in G on a 380-year-old Baroque cello!
The second segment I painted was of Sascha Jacobsen‘s Djangissimo! group (Sascha on bass, Max O’Rourke on guitar and Jason Anick on violin).
The final segment was of the last dance troupe of the evening who performed A Vampire Love Story…”from dusk till dawn”, choreographed by Lucinda Melissa.
The artworks depicting the three segments are shown above.Below is the replay video showing the entire process as I developed the work through the three distinct stages.
This event took place in the historic landmark building, 906.World Cultural Center, 906 Broadway, San Francisco.
