Ian McLaughlin is a Chicago-based hybrid artist whose painting and sound work explore how color, line and shape entice and stimulate the imagination.
The show, Synesthesia for the Times, is an affair of color and sound coming together, a call and response between the two. It plays with the idea that color and sound can enrich and bring vibrancy and wakefulness to our world. Using rhythms, layers and patterns, in both sounds and visuals, the show aims to provoke and weave the senses; to conjure a geographic landscape in the imagination of places and the spaces that can lullaby or wake us, seduce or jar us into the moment.
The show includes a sound collaboration by Tobias Kaemmerer and Ian McLaughlin.
