The Kimono series.

In 2010 while completing my orchestral commission of “A Soldier’s Tale” concert for piano and orchestra Opus 3, I ventured to the Ian Potter museum of art to give my mind and ears a rest. There was a Rupert Bunny collection. An Australian artist I had never seen. I also found out he was a composer like myself so I became very interested. A particular painting of a Japanese actress, titled  “Madame Sadayakko as Kesa” filled me with inspiration. As soon as I got home, I began working on this series at the same time as the orchestral work.
