Oil on Linen

This project began seven years ago as collaboration between Nicholas Ross (pianist), Kent Holliday (composer) and Maurice Quillinan (artist). The project is an exploration of the ‘Golden Section’, which is a mathematical subdivision of a surface area or musical score, suggesting where the most important elements should be positioned. The paintings incorporate the structure of the music, placing the golden notes / moments as Lilly pads. The images endeavour to combine the physical and emotional response that is inherent in our experience of the music and a pond in a given moment in time. The canvases are constantly worked over many years, slightly altering the colour, tonal and textural values of each, to greater enhance the emotional experience of the music and the watery environment. The works are designed as meditative, emotional responses to the music and the water. It has been said that ‘A photograph records time, whereas a painting gives the viewer time’, because a photograph will suggest something and a painting is the place, like magnetic tape it draws in the physicality, the smells, sounds, colours, tastes of an observed environment. Hopefully the viewer can find him/herself in these works and incorporate their own personal emotions and experiences into these painted surfaces, taking in turn what is found inside themselves out into the landscape, thus initiating and amending open-ended conversations between our present and historical experiences, the music/paintings, and our environment.
