The ‘Pursuance’ project has run over two years, with artist/percussionist Walt Shaw creating paintings inspired by pianist/composer Laura Cole’s poetry, with Laura then reciprocating by writing in response to new paintings created by Walt.
It was a natural development to layer the project further with piano and percussion, and to invite multi-instrumentalists/composers Faye MacCalman and Lara Jones to the project, to realise a multi-disciplinary integration in a live setting.
In conjunction, artist Andrew Martyn Sugars has also created a visual projection of the paintings and texts, as an integral part of this performance.
