Terezia Abraham

I created these pieces during the performances of the MOPOMOSO improvisative jazz ensemble led by the eminent guitarist, John Russell.
The drawings are visual represetations of sounds created by musicians and their careful interaction on stage. Improvisation is a true test of musicianship and opens possibilities for the artist to tell their story in a very personal way. It aslo allows instruments to be at the centre of creation.

The first series was created during the annual Fete Quaqua festival in August, 2019, and the second during the MOPOMOSO Christmas Concert, December 2019.
Both events were hosted by the Vortex Jaxx Club, London.

I would like to express my gratitude to John for taking me on, and allowing me to do my thing and be part of the MOPOMOSO journey.
