AUDIO VISIONS

A community exhibition showcasing local artists, who have been asked to create art from music.

Have you ever wondered about the impact music has had on other forms of art? You may have felt the sensations yourself as the melody travelled through you, triggering a feeling you didn’t even know existed, inspiring you to create something that made you feel the same way?

Many great Modern Artists such as: Paul Klee, Henri Matisse, Marc Chagall, Piet Mondrian and Wassily Kandinsky used music as an inspiration for art. Through painting or sculpture, these artists found a way to visually mirror image their strong emotional response to music. The choice of colour or the artists’ brush strokes were often direct result of the melody and rhythm that they heard via a musical composition! This visual representation of music often depended on abstraction: colour, form and shape are freed from objective representation and artworks were often painted rapidly or in multiple sessions to repeating music.
