Improvisation for Lukas Foss
T. Renner, "Half-Remembered (Improvisation for Lukas Foss)," 2009, acrylic on canvas, 8" x 10.
The composer Lukas Foss recently died, and "Fresh Air" ran an interview from 1998 with him today while I was working in my new studio. Foss said something about his work being an attempt to recreate half-remembered music. The above painting is my attempt to recreate a painting on the cover of an album by Al Grey. I didn't have the album cover in front of me so I was definitely working from memory.
