"I want to give voice to my paintings. My paintings are portals into the infinite” Aelita Andre
The paintings become aural soundscapes as Aelita 'plays' her work a revolutionary new technique in art fusing painting and sound. Also featuring in the exhibition Aelita plays her painted violin, which with their completely transformed tonal structure, creates new and extraordinary sounds Aelita’s symphony for the future.
Aelita is the founder and foremost proponent of the new art movement 'Magical Expressionism.' Colours are pure; streams and shapes flow with energy and freedom from a wellspring of unfettered subconscious impulses. Riotous eruptions of color and spectral streams of paint create phantasmagorical images and objects emerging from the canvas, ebbing and flowing in layered waves of uncanny visions in the spectator's mind like a surreal dreamscape. The exhibition brings together for the first time her extraordinary works from 2008 to 2016 as well as unveiling a body of new works from her 2016 'Sound of the Cosmos' series. On show are Aelita’s abstract works, sketches, sculpture, digital art, sound paintings and microphotography.
