Keith ROWE - Toshimaru NAKAMURA


Label: Erstwhile Records

Format: double CD

Genre: Jazz

In stock

"between", for me is about the tension and space between objects, and how we might occupy this area, to reside if you like between the conventions, to locate the flexibility that comes from de-theorizing the dogmas. It seemed to me as if Toshi and I were navigating a route through a familiar part of town, where each of the buildings stood for and represented expectations, styles, outcomes and histories. We wanted to resist entering the buildings and to stay between. The cover art and photo attempt to reflect this process. The painting starts by taking a small part of the photo (just above the door) and zooming in until the image is just a handful of pixels. These are in turn interpreted and viewed as a Mondrian-like painting, which serves both as a map of the photo's location and as the process of a Mondrian passing underneath a Rothko. The photo is of a familiar location to someone, an everyday location. The function of the two images (the painting and the photo) is to view the two simultaneously and imagine the space between. Mondrian's translocation from Europe to America is of interest here, his moving between continents results in inventiveness and vigour found in the New York works.-Keith Rowe
