This is a drypoint print made as part of a series of 6 images. These pictures were inspired by a concert I went to at the Perth Concert Hall called Conversations with Ghosts featuring Paul Kelly and 10 classical musicans including the composser James Leger and Genevieve Lacey on recorder.
Listening to this music over and over after the concert, I created a work that was my response to the lyrics and the sounds. The imagery filled my head as I listened to the CD in my car.
The title of this work is taken from a line in the song called "The Chimes at Midnight"
Here are some of the Paul Kelly Lyrics to the song
"You wont see me I'll be on the air
The chimes at midnight are taking me there
From my high window, I'm stepping onto the air."
