I love the colors of these art works by Rebekka Seale. Rebekka is a multidisciplinary artist living in Nashville, Tennessee. Her oil paintings and textile pieces explore themes of space, ritual, objecthood, and the integration of human senses. She identifies strongly with both the minimalist and colorist movements in art, and enjoys working with natural materials in an effort to understand how color, texture, and form affect consciousness. You can see more of her work on Rebekka’s website.
Rebekka about her work: “What if you could hear color? See sound? Taste words? Synesthesia is a perceptual phenomenon in which the stimulation of one sense triggers an automatic, involuntary experience in another. Some synesthetes perceive music as color, others associate a particular taste with each letter of the alphabet. I experience spacial sequence synesthesia: I visualize numerical sequences and units of time in physical space. My research on this phenomenon has prompted me to study the various ways in which sensory experiences of form, texture, and color interact with one another. In this collection, I explore the relationships between texture and space, color and temperature, and perceived and actual form. The oil paintings and the textile pieces inform and mimic one another. Each work is a point in a sequence.”
