I’ve had a pretty difficult time dealing with the death of my brother last June. He was only 59 years old. He left me his iPod which I haven’t dared listen to yet for fear of breaking down. Most songs I hear on the radio or through Spotify already remind me of him anyway. He was my music guru. Whatever he listened to I knew had to be important. The list of music he opened my ears to is a very long one. Without a doubt Rush is at the top of that list. Most specifically I loved Neil Peart (Rush’s drummer and lyricist). His lyrics are poetic and have fascinated me since I was a kid. So when he died this January I seriously grieved. For the loss of a great artist but also because it was like losing a part of my brother again. I’m actually grateful my brother went before Mr. Peart because I think his death would have really brought my brother down.
About 10 years ago I made a piece of encaustic art titled, “YYZ” as a tribute to the Rush song of the same name. I figured it was about time for another Rush inspired piece. I came up with a found object, boxed assemblage piece with the stolen title, “Subdivisions”. I hope you like it.
