“Entre Deux” by Ben Neill

For Ben Blue Parallel

Inspired by Ben Neill’s new album Horizonal.  I see a “conversation” that gets closer over the time of listening.

Quote by Composer/Musician Ben Neill

It’s fascinating how well you captured the essence of  Entre Deux, which hangs proudly in my office. I always thought of Entre Deux as a conversation which you represented visually.”

Autobiography of a Sybarite (2012)

Silk, linen, cotton, cotton thread and floss, cotton-polyester thread and floss, metallic thread and floss 12.5”x11.75”

I finally am a sybarite: I want all of my senses turned on, tuned up, fed, and watered as often as possible.  The various sections of the piece represent my different senses, lit up and happily responding to the universe into which I have been born. I am so happy I was born a synesthete!!!

Du Hast – Inspired by Rammstein (2014)

Inspiration: Rammstein. “Du Hast.” 1997. Sehnsucht. Motor Music | Length: 3:55 minutes; Musical Genre: German Industrial
Silk, chenille floss, metallic thread 20.5”x32.5”

Inspiration: Rammstein. “Du Hast.” 1997. Sehnsucht. Motor Music  |  Length: 3:55 minutes; Musical Genre: German Industrial

Upon the first listen to Du Hast by Rammstein, I was captivated by the contrasting textures.  My piece “reads” left to right: the zinging sounds start the song, the big curvy semi circles represent the big guitars, and the yelling rough voice is the pink circle.
