Ellen Priest
Jazz: Edward Simon's Venezuelan Suite 16

2008

About

Papers, oil, flashe, pencil, MSA gel. Unframed. “Jazz: Edward Simonʼs Venezuelan Suite #1-23” is a nearly five-year body of large paintings that Ellen Priest completed from 2006 to 2010. Pianist/composer Edward Simonʼs music brings Venezuelan song forms and rhythms into jazz in a four-movement piece commissioned by Chamber Music America. “Jazz: Edward Simonʼs Venezuelan Suite #16” is based on the Suiteʼs 3rd movement, composed in the style of a Venezuelan waltz. In February 2007, Edward Simon’s 7-piece jazz Ensemble Venezuela performed the full Suite in the Main Gallery at the Philip and Muriel Berman Museum of Art at Ursinus College in Collegeville, Pennsylvania in the midst of Ellen Priest’s solo exhibition, “Ellen Priest: Jazz Paintings on Paper: Improvisations on the Venezuelan Suite”. This exhibition included the first ten pieces in her series. Ellen Priest is an American abstract artist who is inspired by music and most notably by jazz. She lives and works near Philadelphia. Jazz has been her subject matter since 1990. Drawing is always central to her process, as well as standing on its own. The artist's inspiration comes from surprisingly diverse sources: • Life-long visual art influences include Cezanneʼs late watercolors, Matisseʼs color and compositional structure, and Abstract Expressionism, especially the paintings of Willem De Kooning and Joan Mitchell. The rhythmic and harmonic structures in jazz and related African and Latin American music. Her athletic pursuits, since her paintings are really about movement. Priestʼs favorite sports are “balance sports,” where motion depends on weight and balance thrown off-centre, often in response to terrain, like skiing.
