Subliminal though it may be, Desirée
Glanville speaks through her fantastic
fractal renderings and choice of music.
The Wiz – Ease on down the road, a
combination of fractals created with
Apophysis, is an example of her
music-inspired work.
A late seventies movie follow-up to a smash Broadway hit,The Wiz,
with its updated, urban Wizard of Oz theme, features characters
rising above their background and others’ expectations of them.
“Ease on Down the Road”, Desirée’s subtitle, is their road-trip theme song; sung by the late Michael
Jackson and Diana Ross, playing the scarecrow and Dorothy, respectively. The two joyfully make their
way down the yellow brick road, laughing, stumbling, and dancing, off to see “the Wiz” (the late Richard
Desirée strews our path with pink and yellow flowers and fantasy crystals, through which we see more
worlds. The landscape is draped in a muli-colored veil of dreams. Butterflies hover above, harbingers of
new life.
Dorothy, ultimately tells the Wiz, when he turns to her for help. ”…you’ll never find [what you’re looking
for] in the safety of this room. I tried that all my life. It doesn’t work. There’s a whole world out there. And
you’ll have to begin by letting people see who you really are.”
Is this Desirée’s message? As artists, getting out of that safe zone and letting others know who we really
are is probably where we begin to “ease on down the road”; the ultimate road trip to the pinnacle, where
the art of joy and the joy of art meet.
