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 ~

Metal artwork: Joel Sullivan

Joel Sullivan, a canadian artist now living in Nova Scotia, was inspired in an early age from his mother’s drawings and spent most of his free time sketching animals, Super Heroes and anatomy which especially fascinated him.
As an adult, after taking a decorative welding course, Joel abandoned the pencil and started to use metal as the base of his work. Combining fine art and metal craftsmanship, Joel creates works that are raw and unusual. He founded Iron Designs and created anatomical sculptures, robots, abstract works and wall art.

Minimalism - Donald Judd

Donald Clarence Judd (June 3, 1928, Missouri – February 12, 1994, Manhattan) was an American artist who was generally considered the leading international exponent of  minimalism. In his work, Judd sought autonomy and clarity for the constructed object and the space created by it, ultimately achieving a rigorously democratic presentation without compositional hierarchy.

Judd began in the 1970s to work on a larger scale, gradually creating a type of open-air museum of his work surrounding his studio at Marfa, Texas. In 1984 he also began applying the principles of his sculpture to a plain style of furniture. A favorite form was the box, either closed, semi-hollow or transparent, presented neutrally so as to refute any symbolic connotation. In some cases a number of boxes were attached to the wall in the form of a stack of alternating solids and voids of equal size. Many of the works embodied seriality, either as a simple mathematical progression or as a repetition of a standard unit.

Judd received grants and awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Swedish Institute, and the John Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, among others.

“After all, the work isn’t the point; the piece is.” – Donald Judd –
