The New Honey Shade - sightless seasons


These works were created on C scale music boxes, then mounted to cigar boxes. 4 pieces were composed for the group show / installation “Please Touch the Art” show at the Center for Creativity. Twelve Oklahoma artists, including two who are blind, have created new work for the exhibition in a wide range of media, including sound, scent, sculpture, installation, and more. Most of the artwork can be touched, while others feature high-contrast imagery or interactive components. The show is designed to engage all the senses, with a particular focus on accessibility for visitors who are visually impaired.

The exhibition opens with a reception Friday, June 3, from 5 – 9 p.m. in conjunction with the Brady District First Friday Art Crawl. Visitors can experience the show and meet TCC student Daniel Brookshire, an artist who is blind. Daniel will demonstrate his techniques for creating art and answer visitors’ questions. Additionally, a hands-on activity will allow visitors to become part of the exhibit by having their voices recorded by artist Mark Wittig. Those recordings will become a sound component of Mark's art installation.

Light refreshments will be served, with free parking in TCC lots and free limo bus rides to and from the Brady Arts District.

Special programs will be held throughout the run of the show, offering additional insight to the works and encouraging visitors with all ranges of abilities to experience the arts.

The exhibition, curated by Oklahoma City-based artist Kelsey Karper, will be on display through July 30

"Music you can touch as well as hear was the objective of four new works created by Mark Kuykendall, aka The New Honey Shade, for an installation that was part of a unique art show in Tulsa curated by local artist Kelsey Karper. Kuykendall then constructed extended remixes of each piece to create a captivating full-length album entitled Sightless Seasons.

The title of each track is taken from the words of Yoko Ono: “Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence. Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance. Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence. Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.” As the music pieces are each about 30 seconds long, in this format they serve essentially as preludes to the much more substantive extended pieces which retain their engaging tactile qualities even as they are excavated both sonically and emotionally with the languid melancholic drone of summer being particularly affecting. Sightless Seasons is a captivating gem that fans of expressive electroacoustic minimalism will not want to overlook." - Stationary Travels
