Description: From Shawn Feeney's "Musical Anatomy" series. An homage to Adolphe Sax, inventor of the saxophone, and Eric Dolphy, jazz multi-instrumentalist. Dolphy played alto sax, oboe, bass clarinet, and flute. He had a mysterious lump on his forehead which was lanced shortly before his death at 36. Dolphy died because of untreated diabetes, but some say he died due to the loss of his third eye. His last words on his last recording were, “When you hear music, after it’s over, it’s gone, in the air. You can never capture it again.” Graphite on bristol vellum, 18 x 24″.
