Music – Some more info on this painting so far. :)

Here is my most recent painting that I’ve been working on at uni. The colours are the ‘music’. The idea behind this piece is getting lost in the world of music. Listening to music is something I spend a lot of my time doing, although often a lot of time I am not even working on art while doing this, a lot of the time I am just sitting and listening to the music. I often feel like my mind is stuck and paralysed, and I am just listening to the same music over and over. My mind tries to get itself lost in the music, and escape to the power of the music world. I wanted to create some art to express this. I feel it is very important to try to express this as it seems vital to who I am. It is like a way of fighting against reality, fighting against emotional and/or mental pain. Music can help you going in life. Music is my weapon against reality. I use it to fight back.

This is done on quite a large canvas, almost the size of me heightwise, twice as wide as me widthwise. Medium is oil paint.

I’ve been listening to the same setlist of some music that I’ve been listening to every day on repeat since the summer, the fact I listened to this setlist on repeat is something that help inspired this work. A huge thank you to all the musicians who created these works. A lot of these I just found by random on the internet but they just happened to be the ones I kept clicking repeat endlessly on these past few months.
The main songs I listened to while creating this piece :
“Blvck Ceiling – Girl money”
“CVL† SH‡† – ßƟD¥ ßΔGƵ”
“Blvck Ceiling – Wvfflife”

One thought on “Music – Some more info on this painting so far. :)

  1. Thank you for giving us this insight. It greatly enhances my enjoyment of the painting. In the 19th century composers were inspired by art and literature. Now your art is being inspired by music. You’ll have to think of a term to describe this. In music it was called ‘Programme music.’ An orchestral work was called a ‘symphonic poem.’
