Fortress Around Your Heart

"Painted to and inspired by the song “Fortress Around Your Heart” by Sting. When I listen to this song, because I have chromesthesia which makes me “see” colors & shapes when I listen to music - this song makes me see incredible contrasts in both textures & in color. The unusual sounds in the orchestral lead into the song felt like I was quickly flying a few feet above a vast landscape which was made of enormous, smooth rocks all covered in whiteish ash. Bits of “life”, shown in browns, creams and golds still linger on the ground. As the song unfolds, black molten lava slowly begins to creep up from different sides, moving constantly. it’s glassy texture overwhelming the ashy ground. As the chorus kicks in, the black paint seems to twist and turn, reaching tendrils out to overtake everything on the canvas, including a golden heart. Created using only my fingers and knuckles."
