There are moments were just the sight of my cello gives me the an absolutely sublime appreciation for the instrument on a whole other level than the feel of actually playing or the sound of a cello playing.
The graceful, some might say sensual, shape of the cello is inspiration enough for some.
Take artist Kristin Morgin, whose exhibit simply titled “Cellos” is showing at the Marc Selwyn Fine Art Gallery in LA through January 23rd.
Morgin takes that evocative shape that players know and love and turn it into equally evocative visual pieces, sometimes leaving just the sheerest hint of the source material.
