Artist Statement: We perceive color in different ways, it’s an individual and subjective experience. Some individuals with Synesthesia associate color with sounds. In my homage to optical art painting below, I explore color relationships related to harmonics. When contrasting values are placed next to one another they vibrate. For example, focus on the center of this painting where both the dark triangle shapes and the light triangle shapes project outward from. Do you perceive a sense of motion when viewing this work?
