Artwork description:

This illustration is inspired by the musical form, Fantaisie, a style of composing music with its roots in the art of improvisation. This is part of a series of illustrations which depict impromptu, shape shifting, lines, intended to inspire the mind.

My work explores the symbiotic relationship between psychology and art. As a singer and a painter, I am interested in the portrayal or communication of our qualia. Qualia are “experiential properties of sensations, feelings, perceptions and, more controversially, thoughts and desires,” which are inherently subjective, as we can only experience or perceive feelings in our own mind. Our inability to explain or to share our internal qualia means that we are alone in our minds because we are only able to experience within our personal consciousness. When plain language fails us, can we communicate our qualia through visual art? What is art for if not to communicate what language cannot?

Working mostly in abstract, I create expressionist portraits of music as an alternate means of conveying the music itself. Marrying both forms of art in new and groundbreaking ways is the vehicle with which I portray my ineffable raw feelings. An abstract snapshot, recording the various psychological affects inspired by the experience of singing or simply listening and being a part of the music. A portrait of the music, if you will. Every step of the artistic and musical experience is recorded in each painting as a reflection of a journey. My hope is that the viewer connects with the work and experiences an emotional journey of their own.
