Ellen Hackl Fagan
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.
My work walks the balance between randomness and intention, and, like jazz music, continues to reveal limitless possibilities for improvisation.
Echoing life’s chaotic beauty, my work embraces all my obsessions du jour: pop music, complexity theory, Jungian psychology, Eastern philosophy, minimalism and decorative art.
