Piece description from the artist
This abstract expressionist painting employs a synesthetic experience, where one experiences sound through visuals. Jimi Hendrix, one of my favorite musicians, was mu inspiration for this piece. The initial sketch for the painting was created with my eyes closed, listening to Hendrix's wailing guitar and feeling the vibes pulse rhythms through my arm.
The undulations of explosive, fiery color and sumptuous organic waves of form echo the circular way Jimi embellished a song. It starts off slow and simple, like in the left bottom color, builds tempo with each new line of each verse, has a spacious moment, and then delves into the infamously explorative guitar solo journey, before returning back to the start and doing it all over again with each new song.
For the complete experience, view this painting while listening to Hendrix!
