My show is dedicated to my main inspiration: music and musicians. It is called “Synesthesia” because these paintings are my visual reaction to some of my favourite sounds. I chose the genre of still life and the medium of oil to represent music because they can relate the sensuality and the illusion of physical textures, colours, fragrances and tastes that singers' voices or the sounds of instruments evoke. Six singers and one musician were represented this way in the exhibition. Of the figurative paintings, two use stories from Ovid's Metamorphoses to represent emotions engendered by the music, and four others are illustrations of Vivaldi's opera La fida ninfa.
The project exhibition consists of ten oil paintings measuring from five by seven inches to twenty four by thirty six inches, plus nine watercolours and six digitally painted sketches.
