From New order to Jacques Brel, Dan Coombs puts together timeless tracks which will drive you into a tunnel of emotions.
Joni Mitchell’s ‘Woodstock’ dreams of seeing the bombers turning into butterflies in the garden isn’t detached from Coombs paintings of figures placed in imaginary surroundings. Landscape dream worlds become mysterious, and paralleling Dan Coombs practise, which explores themes of myth, religion, and psychoanalysis, as David Bowie mentions “Just as long as I can see, I’ll never stop this vision flowing”.
So tune in, relax, and try to think of new ways to grasp the real within the imaginary.
