JOHN ASLANIDIS

 

1961 Born in Australia

 

For over 20 years artist John Aslanidis has defined a space between sound and vision, through seeking to create “paintings you can hear and sound you can see.” His paintings take the form of numerous interlocking and exponentially expanding concentric circles that are painstakingly mapped and masked out, and evolve from an intersection between music and painting.  


This stream of artistic interrogation has a historical lineage that stretches back to the beginning of the 20th century and the birth of international modernism, yet the musical genre that Aslanidis responds to is rooted in the electronic music movement that came to prominence in the 90's.
Creating paintings of vibrational vibrancy that actively engage with the science and perception of sound, his work reflects a confluence of visual and aural stimuli that also mirrors the phenomena of synesthesia, where the senses become blended.

SONIC NEW WAVE

September 29 - November 7 , 2016

 

SINGING INTO SONIC NEW WAVE

 

A collaborative sound art performance of John Aslanidis, Ethan Cohen Gallery and LAM House.

 

The performance aims to explore the borders where the artist's visual and musical language meet. The history of art includes numerous such experiments of collaborations between the visual and the musical, expanding the dimensions of art itself.

 

 

Wassily Kandinsky, an early pioneer of abstraction whose influential essays emphasized the musical characteristics of art wrote in 1910, “Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the hammers, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand which plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.”
