In a time of instantaneous reproduction and exchanges of information, Kurt slows it down. Delegating each inch to a rigorous attention to detail in the copying and transferring onto to wood panels, then cutting, sanding, joining, and ultimately, applying this line to musical transcription. Far Gallery: Ellen Hackl Fagan: Into The Blue Again From the artist's statement: "I build connections between color and sound using installations, interactive games, and collaborations that combine my color-and-texture saturated paintings with music and digital technologies. Each installation invites viewers a chance to explore synaesthesia for themselves. This year I became focused on the core of my creative search in my abstract work and began by creating a small series of works on paper titled “Seeking the Sound of Cobalt Blue.” This series has evolved into floor to wall installations of blue paintings on paper and on the floor that explore the nature of synaesthesia through immersive enviroments, photogramming processes, color saturation, texture, and surface."
