The Sounds that Paintings Make brings together a selection of work both past and present which in one way or another share some properties with ‘sound’. As an abstract visual artist, Sandra Beccarelli is consciously aware of terminology such as ’tone’, ‘rhythm’, ‘movement’, ‘vibration’, ‘intensity’ etc.

Much of the words used to describe aural noises and music share this descriptive language with the visual arts. Sandra’s paintings and drawings also share a connection with the formal layout of musical score and often starts with a linear, or grid-like system to place her own visual notations on.  Some of her works have been created to music, some of her paintings have inspired soundscape compositions by sound artist Daniel Birch and her Disrupted Musical Score rippled through with pins was translated and sung by Plainchant cantor, Father Peter Burns.

In addition, Sandra has collaborated with poet Agnieszka Studzinska to produce a series of Disrupted Etchings and Disrupted Text which contain thoughts and descriptions of the physical processes within each of their creative fields. Agnieszka speaks of “sentences hanging in mid-air”, of absence and presence, while the audience listen to the pace and rhythm of the poet’s voice.

Artist ( Description ): 

London artist, Sandra Beccarelli, is constantly pushing the boundaries within painting, drawing and mixed media. She pursues concepts in both expressive and obsessive ways, where process and meaning are intrinsically linked. She is interested in the use of ‘empty’ space within her work, silent, yet active, where captured moments of intensity such as the accumulation of marks, drips, or heightened colours harmoniously emerge.
