Colour Music brings together the work of visual artists who speculate on connections between pictorial form and pitch, harmony, movement and musical notation. A core of historical works by Roy de Maistre, Ludwig Hirschfeld-Mack, Jozef Stanislaus Ostoja-Kotkowski and Frank Hinder provides the framework for contemporary artists who are also interested in the rapport between music and the visual arts. Extended forms of painting using light, performance, kinetics and musical collaborations renew the preoccupation with synaesthesia that haunted the modernist project.
Video/film works by Warren Burt, an immersive installation by Botborg, painted ‘compositions’ by John Aslanidis, Cathy Blanchflower, John Nixon and David Sequeria and collaborative performances round out this exhibition curated by Tony Oates. Exhibition current from 15 August until 28 September 2014.
John’s first solo exhibition will be held at Edwina Corlette Gallery from 30 September until 28 October 2014. View more of John’s work HERE.
