Sound and Vision with Esme Bruzelius Guron

Sound and Vision
Welcome to 'Sound and Vision' a mish mash of a show exploring my two greatest obsessions; art and music. This show looks to combine the senses as each week I will be choosing a piece of artwork stretching from painting, sculpture, architecture, fashion, and installation art and comprising a synaesthetic playlist which I feel resonates with the artist of that week. As well as creating a playlist of diverse genres I will be elaborating on the history and philosophies behind the artists work and life. I am trying to encourage people to see artwork from a different perspective; urging listeners at home to hear with their eyes as well as see with their ears. As I attempt to make art history and visual analysis more inclusive and accessible, hopefully more people will be pulled into the history of art (a sadly dying subject) minus its pretences.

Andy Warhol

This weeks show focuses on the tin foil splattered world of Andy Warhol with a focus on his 1964 silkscreen flowers.

Tove Jansson

This weeks episode explores the life of Moomin creator, Tove Jansson. I am joined with my friend, Liv, who is from Helsinki where Tove grew up. The focus of the show is two paintings by Tove; 'The Great Flood' 1945 and 'Smoking Girl' 1940. We aim to uncover Tove's inspiring life as well as her much overlooked painterly works, aside from her illustrations which she is most famous for. We go from Scandinavian culture and folklore to Tove's romantic life and beautiful works of art!

Yayoi Kusama

This week we delve into the world of installation art via the Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama. As well as discussing her "infinity Mirrors" installation we will be exploring the underbelly of the art world; outsider artists and the relationship between psychology and art.

Iris van Herpen

This week we enter into the world of fashion (slide to the left) celebrating the ethereal works of Iris van Herpen and in particular her 2019 'Hypnosis' collection. This synaesthetic playlist of the week ranges from Tory Amos, and Grimes to Lump (^*-*^)

Carl Larsson

This week we transcend the north sea over to Scandinavia where we look at the arts and crafts artist 'Carl Larsson'. in particular we zoom into the painting 'Lisbeth' 1894 and discuss the arts and crafts movement within Sweden along side an eclectic synaesthetic playlist.

Linder Sterling

Linder Sterling and the era of the moon hopper... time to delve into a punky, glam rock, disco fever dream. This Sunday was taken over by the works of photomontagist/ musician/ artistic 'Linder Sterling' with a synaesthetic playlist that indulges in The Pixies, PJ Harvey and (of course) Roxy Music so buckle up and slap on your PVC !

Joni Mitchell

This week we celebrate the life, music and artwork of Joni Mitchell as the clocks move forwards and March swings to a close. For me, Joni is the embodiment of spring itself and on this special mothers day episode I dedicate this to my amazing mother who introduced me to Joni Mitchell. In this episode I focus on her painting 'Alixar Moonrise' 1979 and explore her music as well as her own ~eclectic~ music taste!
