Joni Mitchell’s "Green Flag Song" Art Exhibition
This afternoon I visited Joni Mitchell's "Green Flag Song" exhibition at Lev Moross Gallery in Los Angeles. The exhibition is made up of 60 large green toned triptychs created from digitally modified combinations of photographic images, printed on canvas.
I spoke with gallery owner Lev Moross who worked with Joni Mitchell in creating the prints. He described how detailed she was in the process, carefully adding artistic elements and blending the images.
Many of the images are of political figures and war. She says that the images are based on photos of the screen of her malfunctioning television set. According to a Los Angeles Times article, she is quoted as saying “The theme of this show is war, revolution and torture”.
If you are in the Los Angeles area, I recommend a visit to the exhibition. The exhibition continues through January 18, 2007.
See Joni Mitchell’s website for more information about the exhibition and her artwork.
