Music will save the world

“Beaty will save the world,” Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote in  his book, The Idiot.

Music is beauty.  Art is  beauty.

And when music and art meet, the epitome of beauty is born.

Synesthesia is the metaphorical process by which one sense modality is described or characterized in terms of another sense, such as “a bright sound” – sight with hearing -or “a sweet music” – taste with hearing -. With these paintings one can actually “see music”, not only hear it: a double pleasure.

“If music be the food of love, play on.” ~ William Shakespeare ~

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” ~ Plato ~

Red is the color of blood, rubies and roses, associated with love and beauty, but also with fire and danger.

Red lipstick, Red shoes, Red dress: it is the emblem of seduction, which no man can resist to.

Red is timeless, like Love.

Many designers have been inspired by this color, almost all of them has used it at least once, and some of them made it as their famous signature, like Valentino for his dresses and Christian Louboutin for the sole of his shoes.

““Red has guts. Deep, strong, dramatic.”   –   “Women usually prefer to wear black at events because it makes them feel safe, however, if there’s one woman wearing red, she will inevitably be the eye-catcher of the evening. It’s as though the room is suddenly illuminated- simply perfect for a grand-entrance”.  ~ Valentino ~

“I selected the color Red for the sole because it is engaging, flirtatious, memorable and the color of passion.” ~ Christian Louboutin ~

Monumental Sculpture: “Sho” by Jaume Plensa at the Meadows Museum, SMU, Dallas.

Jaume Plensa, born in 1955 in Barcelona, Spain, is a contemporary artist. He is famous for his big sculptures (up to 66ft – 20 meters – tall) mainly representing humans, that can be light or heavy, made with marble, steel and/or glass. His sculptures are composed with different subjects, from trees to letters, to shoes. His work is meticulous and he is committed to a careful construction, obtaining a clean look. One of his most notable works is Crown Fountain (2000-04) in Chicago’s Millennium Park, one of the most successful public art projects of the past decade. He was awarded with the Medaille des Chevaliers des Arts et Lettres by the French Minister of Culture in 1993, with the National Art Award of Catalonia, Spain, in 1996, and with an honorary doctorate from the Art Institute of Chicago. Plensa has exhibited in major museums and galleries worldwide, including in Paris, England, Madrid, Vienna, New York, Chicago and Tokyo.


Sho is one of Plensa’s sculpture and it represents a female head and is formed by white-painted stainless steel openwork mesh. It stands approximately 13 feet tall and 10 feet wide and weighs 660 pounds. It is a portrait of a young Chinese girl, Sho, whom the artist met in Barcelona where his studio is located. The undulating curves of the girl’s facial features and braided hair are emphasized, especially in profile, demonstrating the artist’s ability to represent the human form in large, three-dimension. Created in 2007, it is now exposed in Dallas, Texas, at the SMU, Meadows Museum’s new plaza and sculpture garden since 2009.
