“What A Wonderful World”

David Adickes and Taft McWhorter have both been inspired by music throughout their careers. The two friends share a love and appreciation for Jazz music. When thinking about how they could incorporate their styles for another set of collaborations, Jazz became a part of the conversation. By combining the sophistication of David’s figurative work with the contrast of Taft’s “Double Entendre” lettering style, the two artists have created a work of art that has an emotional tie to both their lives and bodies of work.
