The Motion Pictures Project: A residency at Riverside Arts Center in nearby Ypsilanti, MI during August provided me the space to videotape eight terrific dancers improvising to the sme set of prompts. Theuir dancing is the inspiration for a new set of paintings. See videos for examples of their dancing and the rsulting paintings:

ew screendances push me to new places, challenge the aging body to express with a new determination. I've enjoyed improvising to the wonderful, complex music of friend Bill Bolcom... as well as to the music of other great "B" composers Bach, Beethoven, Boulez and Bassett!
