The following acrylic paintings were inspired by music, and more specifically, the piano. Music has been a part of my life since I was very young. Most of my family was involved with music and I grew up playing the piano. Music was a common interest, and was something that brought us together.
These paintings were inspired by the aesthetic of the piano, and influenced by the structure, shapes, and colours of the instrument. I use many layers and textures in my work to emphasize qualities of movement and energy.
I chose a minimal color palette of black, white, and silver. While this combination provided the simplicity I was trying to achieve, it also allowed for a dynamic contrast. The shimmering effect of the metallic silver further emphasizes vibrancy and excitement.
