about

Balcony View returns with ‘A Portrait of Nothing’.

Powerful echoing rhythms. Wave after wave of marching chords. Patient landscapes with soft gradients. The pleasing lights of dawn and dusk. A smooth surface pulled taught over rolling forms. The warm tones of an afternoon. Slow tempo versus raw expression. Pale, luminous passages balanced by splashes of color. Set against a dark wall of time. The nearness of distance, not background or foreground. Cycling between immediate reality and sleepy abstraction. The journey home is long, but ‘Portrait’ points the way.
