John Aslanidis’s astoundingly intricate paintings express the physicality of sound. He starts with a series of mathematical intervals, creating a base drawing that is akin to an algorithm or “musical score”. From here, he creates maps that feel infinite – rid of starting or ending points, movements that find complexity in repetition.
Inspired by synaesthesia, Aslanidis has collaborated with Clan Analogue, a collective of sound and visual artists and Berlin-based sound artist Brian May. He created a commission for Longchamp’s Tokyo boutique, completed a residency at the ISCP International Studio Program in New York, and had a survey exhibition at the Australian Consulate-General of New York. He is represented at Artbank, across tertiary collections and at Heide Museum of Modern Art.
In ‘Sonic Fragments #8’, Aslanidis stirs a sense of optimism, disorientation and perpetual change. This mind-bending, kinetic painting will hypnotise collectors of abstract and contemporary art.
