Colour and Sound as One by Chas Burke

October 15th – November 13th

Reception and artist performance October 22nd, 1-3PM

Scugog Arts presents Colour and Sound as One, an exhibition of vibrant paintings by artist Chas Burke.

 “My exhibition will illustrate my own unique colour theory by illustrating how each tonal key has its own unique colour at ion. This is done by presenting for each key a diptych consisting of a “study” which presents the actual music notation of my own making as well as a method to allow singing of the colours directly from the painting. The second part is the use of those colours in an “abstract” painting. Additional paintings would illustrate a single colour/sound chord or a given key in a semi abstract fashion.”

As a professional artist and musician, Chas has come to see the relationship between the two disciplines. Paintings can be based on the harmonic structures and progressions of J.S. Bach: hue is pitch, chroma is volume, value is timbre, the medium is orchestration; the construct is a product of time, space and technique. His own unique colour theory is the common element of the style found throughout all the works.

Visit us at the Scugog Arts Space for the reception on Saturday, October 22nd between 1-3PM and enjoy a musical performance by the artist. We will be offering light refreshments including sweets provided by the Nutty Chocolatier!
