Come and discover this dual series of original portraits based on the 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac, inspired by jazz pianist Mary Lou Williams seminal 1945 album The Zodiac Suite. Woven together as a continuum of aural and visual vignettes, these oblique yet concise portraits borrow much from tradition while remaining flagrantly modern. By layering current experiences over past histories, 12 Characters becomes a potent living statement on mixed self-identities and the diverse qualities that unite us, presented through video projections and live musical performances.
