I have been trying to capture songs in my art lately. As a DJ, music has always been a creative outlet for me. Now that I am devoting my creative hours to art, I find myself still majorly influenced by music. This piece is inspired by Rufus Du Sol’s “Desert Night”. It is a calm, rolling track that parallels the rolling hillside contours in this piece. The song’s lovely bits of lightness and shine, are reflected in the gold. There is a depth in the song’s bass, painted by the black ink you see as the foundation.

JP Whiting (0 reviews)

JP Whiting is a emerging abstract artist based in Calgary, Alberta. She uses a concoction of glycol ether, isopropyl alcohol and alcohol ink as her medium. Her inks are poured on solid art boards and controlled by a heat gun and/or gravity by tilting the board. JP Whiting's method is as unique as it is vibrant. "When left in the hands of gravity and chemical reaction, ink can perform an incredibly beautiful dance. For me, this capture parallels a photo of a galaxy, or a cut geode, maybe a view of riverbanks or coral reefs from outer space. There is a familiarity that even in my studio, the same universal laws and visual language are at play."
