Viewers are invited see some of what Artist Jacky Niven hears at an exhibition launching on Monday 4th June 2012 at Aberdeen Arts Centre in Aberdeen City Centre. The abstract artworks created by the artist portray elements of her condition known as synaesthesia; a state which is described by a mingling of the senses.
Jacky has produced a body of work for this show influenced by her synaesthesia experiences through which she explores her relationship with the condition synaesthesia from her early years to present day.
“I heard Jupiter by Holst, Those were the Days by Mary Hopkins and Lark Ascending by Vaughan Williams - I was six! It was a good year! All my childhood years were good ones - in fact they were yellow!” is the show’s opening statement. Jacky has found the creative process fascinating as it has highlighted the effect the condition has on so many aspects of her life that she had not previously realised.
The exhibition promises to be a vibrant display of colour and form as the artist gives an essence of the timbres, tones and textures evoked by music, spoken words and numbers.
The show opens to the public on Tuesday 5th June until Friday 29th Jane at Aberdeen Arts Centre, 33 King Street, Aberdeen AB24 5AA. For more information contact J.Niven at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07971 976 090.
Jacky invites you to see the world as she hears it.
