Lea Jade is a synesthete: She has the rare gift of hearing colors. When music is being played, Jade can see its mood and rhythm in colors and transfers them into her canvas. In Jade’s so-called soundscapes, the sound of colors and the color of sounds go hand in hand. The basic principle of her work is the succession of several color layers that result from music impressions. While listening to sounds, new manifestations of colors are constantly created during the painting process, resulting in a perfect painting, but in chronological order. This temporal sequence can be experienced in the respective layers. The observer should not only look at the surface, but should also analytically dig deep into the depth of the color layers and sound impressions. The instruments themselves and the characters of the tones are decisive for the translation of sound into color.
“For me, it is important to feel the paintings, not understand them”.
