Chromatic Rhapsody features a body of Natalia’s work exploring the relationship between sound and visual art.
Natalia is interested in visual perception, and her current work is based on synesthesia, a neurological phenomenon in which an external stimulus causes a sensory reaction in two or more senses simultaneously. Based on the idea of the blending of the senses, and research in perception, color theory and music theory, Natalia explores the process of translating music into visual art. Her two dimensional and video works employ color, mark-making and form to express the timbre of musical instruments and the pitch, notes, and tempo of musical compositions. Her sculptural and sound works look at how sound is produced. Natalia intends for viewers to “play,” producing their own sounds and melodies by interacting with her three-dimensional works.
The beginnings of my current work exploring the relationship between sound and color. These works were made in 2012.
Paintings made between 2006-2011. The first 8 paintings make up a series called “Places,” my somewhat tongue-in-cheek look at landscape. The next 6 paintings are from an untitled series in which I explore the visual memories I retained of my grandfather’s death in 1994. “6-portraits”, a series from 2010, and lastly, “These Are Paintings” a series of works from 2011 that begin with the question “What makes a painting” and in turn each explore an aspect of painting.
