I find connectedness through various forms(poetry, painting, music) by insisting on spontaneity. An image that I paint could very well become a chorus in a song. Paying close attention to my dreams and the soft voices inside my imagination, and allowing these to shape within my being's center(an emanation of my heart), this is the affirmation of the symbolic through faith. An invisible loving which manifests itself through patience and is never controlled. The hidden becoming known. My work will always seek an affirmation or communion while creating a liberation of the ordinary. A visionary poetic journey of almost twenty years, Project End Of Days is a celebration of "heartsongs" that will inspire.
eBookMall recently interviewed T. Byron Kelly. Here is an excerpt:
The idea of combining poetry with music and paintings is very interesting. How exactly do you display your poems with a piece of music or a painting?
"My paintings are often illustrations of my poems and are framed and hung next one another in a gallery setting. Our band spectral arts has also performed music with the poems sung and spoken (much of it spontaneously) at many of my exhibits over the years. We also use a digital projector to display both paintings and poems during our shows."
