The Euphonic Shade of Art - Joshua Timmerman

The theme of the gallery is the Color and Texture of Music. Different genres of music bring out a wide range of emotions and sometimes vivid memories to some. Mixtures of colors and textures also do the same. The only difference is one medium is audible, and the other is visual. To try to combine the two mediums into one can be beautiful.

This piece shows what is depicted as "Cosmic Music". The lines in this piece could be a representation of the lines on musical staff. Also every genre of music connects, like these lines in this painting seem to be connected, and shows a constant flow.
This painting shows what seems to be a lady playing a stringed instrument. There is very little color other than a mxture of black and white in this painting, it gives you a very down to earth, calm feeling. The texture of this painting is also very interesting, it seems to be darker in certain spots than others.
This painting uses the components of what you would find on a DJ mixer, the knobs, buttons, faders. The colors in this painting are very bright and have the same color scheme throughout the painting. This could be inspired by the bright lights on a DJ mixer or turntable, some of the colors might relate to the multi color the midi keyboards that are very popular now.
The painting shows a man teaching his students how to play a drum. This painting is very simple and isn't overwhelming to look at, like some songs are very simple but have such an impact of the listener. You can tell the students are very intrigued by the teacher and the drum. The scale of this painting is very small is barely takes up any of the space as well.
This painting shows what looks very similar to the keys on a piano. The painting is called "Cadence and Discord", Cadence can be related to a melody or notes that work well together, so the painter could be using colors that go together and work well. Discord means to not agree, discord in music causes tension and uncomfort, so again the painter may have used colors that didn't agree with each other.
This piece is called "Music", it clearly shows people at a party and a few of them are dancing. Usually dance music has a good feeling behind it, and is uptempo. The artist interprets the dance music as bright and colorful to hopefully evoke a positive mood. You can actually see the speaker in the top corners projecting about the colors and that fill the room along with the light fixtures above the people.
This painting shows a acoustic guitar and newspapers on a wooden desk. This painting is more shape orientated, hard corners and squares. The guitar is assymetrical, which is usually unusual. The strings on a guitar closely resemble a musical stuff, with the same amount of lines and spaces between the strings.
This painting is called "Rhythm", the image in the painting closely resembles two inch recording tape all bundled together. The lines and curves closely wrap into each other, the lines have a certain rhythm to them like the name of the piece. It could be a depiction of if a song has a good groove and rhythm, all the instruments will gracefully wrap and melt into one another to make song, or in the case a piece of art.
This painting is named "Rhythmic coposition in yellow green minor", this piece shows a mixture of mostly yellow and green going down in a spiral. This piece does have a rhythm to it, it has a constant spiral down, along with a consistent color change. The word minor in music relates to a sad sounding chord, you can see how the term minor relates to this piece, as the colors come out of the sprial and start to shade. It evokes a darker feeling.
This painting show an angel with red and white wings playing a guitar like instrument. The angel doesn't seem to be in the happiest of moods, but the colors in this painting are very bright and vibrant along with the dark background, possibly making the colors seem even brighter. The balance between these two visuals can be very confusing to the viewer.
