As A Spiritual Path
Shamanism: From the Old to the New
the World into Life
on Simplicity. . . How I Re-Inhabited My Community
In The World
Absorbed is a work of art by Jazz Minh Claire Moore, a student at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle. Ive put the viewer of the piece in the exact nook where I used to sit for hours, listening to Stephen play. No background is pictured because, in the music, it didnt existonly the music. Stephen prefers to play on the older pianos because, as he says, They sing. They are unique and hand-crafted and imperfect. In this painting, I hoped to capture the hypnotic intensity when the world disappears and only the music and the listener are left. The notes have control over me.
Jazz attended Cleveland High School (Portland) and graduated from South Salem High (Salem) in 1996. She was recipient of a Kreilsheimer Scholarship award to attend Cornish. This work of art is currently in a private collection in Seattle.
