Paris Opera watercolors

It would serve no purpose to attempt to align the individual works on view with the narrative development of the performance as it unfolds, for their essence has little if anything to do with such matters. Rather their collective function would seem to be emitting a kind of scintillation —flashing signals that taken together transmit an impression of the whole of which they are a part, without depriving them of their individual character and energy.
