I create space in which multi-sensory occurrences fuse within sound and painting. My paintings are layered from many moments in time, light and sound; ever-changing and overlapping. I look at shifts in light, changes in color and focus on layers of transitional music. The viewing experience is continual, noticing variations in color and layers of paint. Some of the paintings reflect many movements in a score and others just one, all stemming from musical themes.
In considering this body of work, I took into account the space in which they would be hung. The music, the blue walls, the stained-glass light, the events happening here; they all influence your senses. The paintings are a part of the space, a continuation of the stage. The audience is both viewer and listener.
Green Piano Orange Violin is based on Sergei Prokofiev’s four movement musical score, Sonata No.2 in D major Op. 94: l, ll, lll, lV. Each movement is layered within this painting. Much in the same way the light shifts as the sun moves in and out of clouds. The sonata starts off in a light tempo and finishes at a very brisk one; a very dramatic piece.
In viewing these paintings and reading their musical titles the viewer is given the tools to engage both sight and sound. Seeing a painting and imagining a sound stimulates a multi-sensory experience. Senses talk to one another. I create space in which sound and painting interact.
