"No one thought he was who he was. But he was." - Rodney Hall

Fairweather is a new collaboration of composer Erik Griswold, author Rodney Hall, and artist Glen Henderson exploring the remarkable life, work, and psychology of artist Ian Fairweather. This multi-media work is scored for string quartet, koto virtuoso Satsuki Odamura, with Rodney Hall himself as narrator, framed by Henderson's evocative video works.

Starting from the artist's early years in Scotland, Fairweather traces his experiences as a soldier in World War I, his myriad travels through the Asia-Pacific, his life changing journey aboard a home-made raft, and his final years in a dilapidated shack on Bribie Island.

Reflecting on scenes, events and images from the artist's life, Griswold, Hall, and Henderson create a collage of music, text, and image which mirror the intricate, textured layers of Fairweather's paintings.
