Fugue means “flight” in Latin and is the source for the English-language words: fugitive, refugee, etc. My brother gave me a set of ugly gold curtains and I have made several paintings of them from direct observation in combination with whimsical action-painting gestures. I am very interested in the particular timing and pacing of individual paintings. For this piece, it was like a slow steady progression that culminated in a frantic almost violent rendering of the goings-on in the gold curtain at the top of the panel.
