” My works are visual/sonic compositions/choreographs
that can be heard
with the naked revelation

of an open palm:

unfolding in time and space, 

what appears monumental is intimate

 and

what is intimate is monumental.

X

My works need an ACTUAL encounter to experience their VITALITY

-like bearing witness to LIVE performances

rather listening to online clips.

X

X

X
The MOON: Aerial MINES portfolio was created in sequence,
like the waves exhaling toward the shoreline

and

inhaling back into the depths of the sea.

X
It was a long jam session in a recording studio-no edits,
a majestic high dive from a place on the moon to the moon within you:
waning + waxing, dancing + spinning
a slow curtain closing and opening
to reveal
the depth of luminosity and the shine of darkness…”

The sonic clips below are offered as approximate divining rods

that resonate, mirror and echo my creative process + art.

The visual clips are each from the original painting above.

Support the authenticity of the artists’ offering:

EXPERIENCE the work LIVE + ACQUIRE the work.  

Be a GUARDIAN of CREATIVE GENIUS please.

THE AUTOMATIC MESSAGE

Camille LeFevre

X
“In the best abstract art,

the personal is universal,

the abstraction an archetype,

and simplicity a statement of complexity.

How the artist’s psyche plays into this methodology

is the subject of Instinct Gallery’s “The Automatic Message,”

which takes a cue from that famous surrealist Andre Breton…”

JAMES CARTER TRIO – ” Django Unchained

X
X
No association with Quentin Tarantino!

 

X
Taking on, taking out the cigarette, yet, smokin’

and swinging with Django Reinhardt!

X

 

 

22 June 2014 @ Dakota

What was THE experience?

X

I spoke with James afterwards:

You have taken Django Reinhardt
into the boxing ring…
dancing like a butterfly, stinging like a bee and

grabbed a chunk of heaven

and flew/threw/blew it throughout the audience…

Beautiful.

Tight.

Gorgeous.

Simply gorgeous: church swinging from the soul + hips.

X

X
X
Visceral. Masculine. Growling.

Tender. Swinging. Gospel.
X
X
A cherished, ferocious, sweet and ecstatic

pouring of a sacred waterfall
from the instrument of a man’s breath

and

his wind instruments.
X
X
X
X
Of course, I stayed for both sets! and danced…
His mentor, Donald Washington was present-James’ “POPS” .
