Muse GC MyersThis is a piece I’m working on at the moment, something I’m calling Muse.  It’s a triptych done on the insert panels of an old upright piano, making it somewhere in the 18″ high by 60″ long range.

It’s still a work in progress so I’m sure this will change at some point.  I’m still playing with the idea of incorporating words on the black of the frame  or building a pedestal so the piece would be freestanding but it’s all unsure at this point.

I really like the feel of the architecture of the panel itself, the way it holds the paintings.  I have several other pieces of this piano’s cabinet for which I have plans and if they work in the manner I hope may lead to a group of other pieces featuring architectural/ furniture elements.  More of an object than a painting.  The concern with such a thing is to not let it devolve into kitsch or decoration alone.  The painting that adorns such objects needs to be able to stand on its own, making the viewer forget the surrounding environment, which should, in theory,  enhance the painting.

But so far, I’m pretty happy with the way this progressing.  This will probably not leave my studio but will hopefully inspire further forays into this look.  We’ll see.
