Gouache on rag tracing vellum - Unframed.
This work on paper is part of a series of collaged paintings titled “Jazz: Herbieʼs ʻDolphin Danceʼ #1-22”.
Those brush paintings are Priest's ﬁrst ʻvisualʼ encounter with a jazz composition. The images she develops there are redrawn and combined for the ﬁnished collages. Based on jazz pianist Herbie Hancockʼs classic composition “Dolphin Dance”, she tried to use these drawings and the resulting collages to capture the light and movement typical of the beach where she spends much time in the summer.
