Inspired by research in synesthesia, Oliver Sachs’s book “Musicophilia”, and David Bowie’s song “Sound and Vision”, I decided to listen to music and paint. The music drove not only my color decisions but the type and placement of marks on canvas. Here is the result.
Although this work was rejected from several different art shows (and was nearly re-titled “Reject”), this remains one of my favorite pieces I’ve created — even if I’m the only one who enjoys it. 🙂
