Colour and Music.
Over a period of 7 to 8 years I produced a series of painting focussing on Music. These were in particularly inspired by music which was inspired by or written to portray something visual. This was initially spurred by my own experience of Synaesthesia and then also through a profound engagement with Olivier Messiaen’s Organ music. This led to collaborations with various musicians. Firstly Dame Gillian Weir, which then led me to composers such as John McCabe and John Tavener and then work by George Crumb, Edward Cowie amongst others. Some of this work was purchased privately and some available in Public Collections.
Here is a short film which reflects on this work with Messiaen’s music..
