Visual Master Bernard Hoyes’ Art Comes Alive in a Theatrical Production at Los Angeles’ Ford Amphitheatre

Los Angeles – For over four decades the paintings of visual art master Bernard Stanley Hoyes have stimulated the masses. With compositions that boast majestic color, bold creativity and magnetic passion, his artwork is known for stirring the heart, mind and soul. As an iconic craftsman channeling images from a deeply spiritual space, it has been said that Hoyes’ work ‘speaks’ in more ways than one, touching the core of African worship through Jamaican Revivalism. The fervor behind it all; the moans, hallelujahs and laments, the whispers and the shouts, as well as the wailing and chants that seep through his compositions, are now going to literally jump off the canvas and come to life in a interdisciplinary materialization entitled, “Seven Paintings, a Story in Performance.” The event take place Sunday, August 5, at 8.:00pm at Los Angeles’ Ford Amphitheatre as part of the venue’s ever-popular “FORD 2012 DANCE” series .
