Painting music, listening to painting

From to

Music evolves in time and painting in space. Sounds and timbre appeal to the ear while colours and lines to the eyes. And, despite everything, from the dawn of modernity, numerous thinkers have perceived these two arts as the parallel expression of the same essential beauty. Purely visual terms such as “colour” are successfully used to describe certain musical creations, while we resort to concepts like that of “rhythm” to speak about certain pictorial works. This series is about the experience of simultaneously perceiving two works of art that contain explicit connections: contemplating painting and listening to music as a unique creative act that can subvert their essence.
