I have developed my own long-term curricula and created project-specific short-term lessons. For more information, please send me a message!
- My work is inspired by music. Music is mysterious and magical: it is ephemeral and physical. It's both chaos and order. It is logical and theoretical, steeped in mathematics, physics and technical skill...at the same time, it's born from imagination, emotion, intuition and improvisation. It is a part of all the different aspects of life: Celebration and sorrow, the spiritual and the secular, different classes and cultures. A large body of my art is about music, or more specifically, it is comprised of a series of works that express music visually. Like music, my approach to these works is multifaceted: on one hand, I am working with a very theory driven and scientific approach. This aspect is influenced by research in color, sound, vision, the biology of vision and physics of light, musical theory, and the brain's perception of sound and color. It is inspired by the theoretical structure of sonatas, rondos, rhapsodies, harmonics and more. On the other hand, my work is also very personal and relates to my emotional and perceptive response to music. In my current work, I am exploring synesthesia, a neurological condition in which a stimulus creates a reaction in two or more senses at the same time.
- In modern art, as painting moved towards abstraction, music and visual art began to influence one another. It would be impossible to analyze the interrelation of art and music without touching upon the work of Wassily Kandinsky. Kandinsky, a synesthete, created a whole body of work inspired by sound and music. I am also inspired by works of John Cage, Christine Sun Kim, Oskar Fischinger, James and John Whitney, and Stan Brakhage.
