Listen and Reflect at Watson Galleries "Inscapes" pairings by WLU Students
"I felt drawn to this piece because the blooming yellow centrality reminded me of a garden bursting forth with life. The splatters of yellows on green and purple feel explosive and full of energy, but the surrounding muted blues and greens balance out this feeling into something slower, more dignified. This harmony led me to choose a song that feels the same, hopeful and swelling with life that moves along a measured, growing path.”
