Pictures at an Exhibition

Pictures at an ExhibitionIn 2005 the Newcastle Conservatorium had two public concerts with students playing Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition” which was originally written as a musical tribute to the work of artist Victor Hartmann.

I painted a series of artworks as the music was being played and this was projected onto a large screen over the orchestra. The public response was positive even though I lost my place several times, and my artistic interpretations were probably very different to Hartmann’s original works.
