Colour Frequency, 2014
Acrylic paint, stretched canvas, 18 x 24 in.
Series/style of painting Ciele created that is solely based on her interpretation of well-known music through synaesthesia. The result is a beautifully and aesthetically sound 5’ x 3’ grid of colour, 100% playable, in time, as sheet music.
‘Peg O’ My Heart’ is based on the 1912 arrangement, written by Alfred Bryan and Fred Fisher. Inspired by my grandfather, Poppa, who would sing it from the Bakery window, across the street from my grandmother’s house, when they were courting as teenagers.
