Artistry inspiring artistry is a common occurrence. A book inspiring a film, a poem, a song, a myth, a dance. One of the less common events is painting inspiring music. And even rarer is the concept of profound artistry spawning profound artistry. In the case of composer/percussionist Jeff Guthery's masterpiece Black Paintings, both of these rarities have been powerfully achieved. Inspired by a series of intense and mystic paintings by the immortal 18th-19th century Spanish artist Francisco Goya y Lucientes, Guthery has selected nine of his fourteen Black Paintings as his own canvas for artistic exploration. Serving as more than a launching point of inspiration, Guthery's intent was even more ambitious.
