Anne Patterson: Airidescence Opening Night

Airidescence, a combination of abstract watercolor paintings, hanging ribbon sculptures and wire installations, is Anne Patterson’s first Alfstad& Contemporary exhibition. The works transform the gallery into a multi-sensory realm where viewers experience Patterson’s integration of two worlds: art and music.

Due to synesthesia, a neurological condition in which the stimulation of one sense causes an involuntary response to another sense, Patterson hears color and sees sound. “I see an incredibly magnificence of colors and shapes when I hear music,” she says.

Based in New York, Patterson exhibits throughout the US and Europe. Her paintings and sculptures are not only in private, public and corporate collections, she has created massive installations of colored ribbons and light for major orchestras across the country, including the San Francisco and Atlanta Symphonies, Philadelphia and American Symphony Orchestras and the New World Symphony in Miami.
Experienced in theatrical design, Patterson’s Graced with Light, a music-inspired installation, filled the vaulted ceiling arches of San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral with 20 miles of ribbon. She created The Light Between out of aluminum wire to heighten the natural light is an atrium in Boston. “I wanted to make light tangible,” she says. “Bring its joy and energy down to the ground level of the building.”

We invite you to experience Anne Patterson’s work for yourself. You can also view her “Pathless Woods” interactive, multi-media installation at the John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art.
