Castilo De Arena, 2019

A renowned composer and Jazz vocalist in her own right, Cécile McLorin Salvant has a parallel visual arts practice, producing works that range from large-scale textiles to hand-drawn animation and unique drawings on paper. As she moves fluidly between practices of creating music and visual art, these mediums intertwine and reflect back on one another. Salvant’s characters and recurring glyphs dance through the drawings, the work reverberating with a sonic energy.

Cécile McLorin Salvant is a composer, singer, and visual artist born in 1989 in Miami, FL, and currently residing in New York. Salvant won the Thelonious Monk competition in 2010, has received Grammy Awards for Best Jazz Vocal Album for her 3 latest albums, “The Window,” “Dreams and Daggers,” and “For One To Love,” and was nominated for the award in 2014 for her album “WomanChild.” In 2020, Salvant received the MacArthur fellowship and the Doris Duke Artist Award.
