Synesthesia art – the worlds best gift for music lovers

Sigourney Young is an artist and synesthete born in Australia. From her studio in Yorkshire, Sigourney creates conversation starting synesthesia art that is as unique as the song you love.

Abstract options are here!

Since I began creating synesthesia paintings many years ago my style has evolved as different aspects of the process took my creative interest. My pieces started as highly abstract as I explored my experience of synesthesia. These early paintings depicted the surface colours of a song, the overall effect of the music on my mind.

Since then, my art has evolved and my ability to articulate my own experience has grown stronger. I can identify the colours of each subtle sound within the music and have focused on translating this detail into my pieces and my synesthesia descriptions.

Bring mom to tears – Kaleigh’s story

p.s. Read all the way to the end of the blog to find out how you can win your Mother’s Day artwork!

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than with a story about a song that means so much to this mother and daughter. Every so often I get to paint a song that takes me totally by surprise, with Kaleigh and her mom, this was one of those moments. Their song ‘Rainbow Connection’ performed by none other than Kermit The Frog, is a sweet and meaningful melody that Kaleigh explains “brings my mom to tears 100% of the time- it instantly transports her back to my young childhood”.

Phenomenal Woman – Celebrating International Women’s Day 2019

International Women’s Day is one of my favourite days of the year and I am forever thinking up amazing projects that I could do to celebrate, and then falling short when it gets to crunch time. In that way, it’s also one of my least favourite days of the year. It makes me feel like I haven’t done enough, and that I haven’t done justice to the wonderful women I admire.

March 8 makes me want to create something profound. To make and share something that captures my experience of womanhood and the women that influence it. This year I am releasing myself of that pressure. Instead, I want to share a poem that speaks for itself.

Women’s History Month

March is Women’s History Month around the world and this month I intend to get into the spirit and celebrate a few of the women that helped shape the world around me. It is a month when we actively seek to uncover women’s stories from the past, so many of which remain untold. It is also a time to celebrate the achievements and contributions of women to all societies across the globe and to remember those who struggled against oppression and discrimination.

This beautiful piece of art brought me to tears. The way she describes the piece, each color and splash is something different.

I’m in awe– I will be back!!
