Synesthetic Body #7, 36”x31”

The Synesthetic Bodies Collection celebrates color for color’s sake; light for its dynamic properties, and movement for its inspiring forms – all through the lens of music. These works are a celebration of the basic elements that form our world. Synesthetic Body #7, 36”x31” is a mixed media tapestry. This piece was made to be a living, moving piece of art instead off fixed, and trapped between stretcher bars. Instead of stretching the pieces each distinct layer floats above the next and moves independently from the other layers.

The goal of this series is to give you the closest experience to what it’s like to live with chromesthesia –­ a form of synesthesia – where I see music as moving color, shape and light.  I created these works while listening to Claude Debussy’s Clair de Lune, each tapestry in this series represents a snapshot of a section from the piece. My hope is that that you too can see the music with me. Every work in this series is a snapshot from a piece of music ­­– flowing, moving, changing with the sound. Fastened to a 36” acrylic rod and hung with fishing line the art is made to float off the wall and into your space. Instead of stretching the pieces each distinct layer floats above the next and moves independently from the other layers.  Each piece was made to be a living, moving piece of art. This series builds from two previous collections, the Breathing Room series and Iridescent Light series.

Synesthetic Body #7 dipicsts 1:49-2:02 of Clair de Lune by Claude Debussy
