Margaret Witzsche, Painting

Ladder/amp

Ramsgate begins to diverge from the other paintings and is maybe the beginning of a new series.  The salmon swims towards an unknown future and is possibly trapped in the tunnel.  Ramsgate is the location of one of the tunnels enlarged and used as bomb shelters in England during the 1st and 2nd world wars.

Music escape

The themes for these paintings continue from the Hutch series with the emphasis on breaking free rather than being held back.  Blockages and barriers are still evident.  Music becomes a means for living ones life.  It becomes like water, a submerging that doesn’t drown but carries one along, teaching and nurturing. 

Music escape 4 is a tribute to the people of New Orleans. 

Rock & roll is dead—long live rock & roll speaks to rock and roll’s  tenacity as a musical form.   It’s a tribute to the band Silverlode, the energy and joy of the musicians when they play stays with us and nurtures us.  The title comes from the Lenny Kravitz song.
