Mixed Media Abstract Painting "LIVING IN THE NOW" by Santa Fe Contemporary Artist Sandra Duran Wilson





I have synesthesia which is a crossing of the senses. When I hear music I see colors, and numbers create tones. This painting is a combination of all of my passions including physics and music. It began with a poem, which was written on the surface. Many layers of plaster and special blends I made to create texture were built onto the surface. The color was influenced by the song that is depicted by the musical score. The song was made by sonifying the data which came from the Higgs-Boson collider in Cern Switzerland. I told you it was weird didn't I. It is my vision of creation.
