Chromatic Forms:
Series/style of painting Ciele created that is solely based on her experience with synaesthesia. As well as Sound to Colour synaesthesia (as seen in her Colour Frequency paintings) she also experiences Visuo-Spatial synaesthesia where she sees shapes and movement while listening to music. To express these elements she began making Chromatic Forms.


‘Melodies & Desires’ is based on the song, of the same name, by Lykke Li.
