THE COLORS OF SOUND
On each surface, I replicate sound energy, frequencies, and movement using highly-pigmented acrylic inks and paints mixed with water mimicking how sound travels in space.
After my sudden hearing loss in 2017, I was in extreme pain and isolation. In the beginning, I couldn’t paint because I would get dizzy with every movement. I had to rest most of the time and I was not able to continue creating. It was difficult to move freely or be in an optimal "state-of-mind", and this was devastating.
During this time, I never felt angry, but instead, I felt confused, suffering when not even the medicines helped ease the pain or the symptoms.
One day, something happened; I ironically turned to sound to lift my creative spirit. I started analyzing sound frequencies and the patterns they create, and it was at this moment when The Colors of Sound was born.
I use vibrant colors to create a positive message. Through this collection, I explore the relationship between sound and life, encouraging the reflection on how we listen to our surroundings.
