Program Notes

While at the Art Institute of Chicago, I spent a good amount of time with the works of Van Gogh. There was one particular painting of an outdoor scene that caught my attention. While engaging with this work I remember saying to myself: “This is solace”. I often think it takes work and seeking to find solace, as it does not always come to us naturally. In this work I imagined a person dancing her way to experiencing this sense of peace.
