In the period when I was first experimenting with foamboard cutouts, I created a group of pianos initially intended to be small gifts to friends. Instead, this group of irregularly shaped pianos was randomly assembled them onto a canvas shadowed by a magenta-on-magenta background. When complete, it looked to me like a walking giant .
The title is borrowed from the John Coltrane composition “Giant Steps”, one of the most challenging pieces for improvisors in the jazz repertoire.
