Music & Color Exhibition from 04-06 to 03-07-2010
While he improvised jazz of the 20th century, Miles Davis believed that “music is a painting that can be heard. ” A few steps later, he hastened to add that “painting is music you can see”. Symmetry requires the maestro.
The series of portraits of women “Music & Color ” Sandrine Astier, French colorist who has bathed since his childhood in the music certainly does not contradict. Nothing is yet to approach your ears of his paintings. He would not leave a high value colored silence. Remains then only to watch them. For with your eyes you hear the funky sounds that have ceased to rush into the body of the artist in their creative process.
The painting, like music, out of nothing. Then, once the movement is taking place, harmony, rhythms and colors are organized in a chaos. The battle against the unspeakable began. And how to express the infinite strangeness or extreme familiarity of the faces of Frida Kahlo, Betty Davis and Asha Puthli, if not representing them?
The brushwork, as the breath of Davis, caress the universal. As no word will never be able to.
