I have recently been exploring the Artist, who goes by the name of Wassily Kandinsky, a Russian painter and theorist and is known for creating some of the first- recognised abstract pieces of his time. Kandinsky explores the idea of sound, and how that can transcend into a piece of art depending on the different sounds, which ones hears.
Kandinsky viewed music as the most transcendent form of non-objective art – musicians could evoke images in listeners’ minds merely with sounds. He strove to produce similarly object-free, spiritually rich paintings that alluded to sounds and emotions through a unity of sensation.
In my own work, I am going to explore sound and maybe consider incorporating it into my paintings. I plan to paint listening to different types of music as a form of experimentation and hopefully I can piece together some sort of explanation for the reason Kandinsky was so engrossed in the idea of sound and art.
