Space Music II by Tolkyes Space Music II by Tolkyes
Oil on canvas. 22"x28".

A spontaneous painting. I am just trying to convey, visually, how certain kinds of more abstract music sounds to me, particularly modern Jazz.

Thank you. "Space Music II" was one of my more experimental paintings but I did have a clear idea of what I wanted to do.

I'm glad you like it. Like many of my paintings it was inspired by music. With this painting I had fusion jazz and electronic music in mind.

Gorgeous colors and fantastical imagery, from the concrete, earth-bound solid forms to the ethereal apparitions. Reminds me a little bit of Dali's "Swans Reflecting Elephants" in different ways.

Thanks. It was a fun painting to do. My concept was to paint organic forms near the bottom and horizon that would appear solid then become translucent as they reached upward into the blackness of space.

You're welcome, nice job. You succeeded very well in my opinion. I wish I could paint like this. Take a look at my two abstract digital pieces I've done if you have a chance and let me know what you think.

Thanks. This was a fun painting to do. I had a vague idea of what the overall structure would be but the imagery was painted in a completely spontaneous manner.

Thank you. This painting was spontaneous and free form but I did have an idea going into it.
I wanted to have a night sky with semi-transparent organic imagery in front of it which gradually became more opaque as it lowered down in front of the landscape behind it.

(hehe...it reminds me of the Mighty Boosh, a bit. Like, when they go to find the new sound. Which is fitting I guess, given Howard's penchant for jazz funk...)

Well, besides modern jazz it's also about space or 'mindscape' music in general- new age, electronic, prog rock and classical.
Even Gary Numan has a dark and surreal landscape quality to his music so I think both Vince and Howard could relate to my painting.

Thank you, Josip. Most of my paintings are basically inspired by music and usually a particular song or musical piece.

However, this painting, like my previous painting, "Space Music" (my second painting that I did after "Cold Moon" in 1999) is about music in general. In other words, music abstractlty rendered as painting.
Of course, I'm talking mainly about 'space' or 'mindscape' music, such as new age, fusion jazz, prog rock or classical.
