Leitmotiv is a special exhibition in which the rose takes centre stage. This emblematic flower appears in each of my movements on the Schumann, like a leitmotif, a recurring musical pattern in a piece. It acts as a metaphor to demonstrate at what stage of the couple’s relationship the movement takes place.
The exhibition married drawings in graphite and charcoal with photographs on Plexiglas of the rose at different moment of its blooming stages. Hanging in the centre of the room was a mobile made of fresh rose petals and a few paintings from Le Prélude series were also displayed.
The exhibition ran from October 3 to 27, 2019 at the Frelighsburg Art Center.
