Leigh Ann Williams

“This series of work is based on music and communicates the energy, vibration, and movement within the musical experience. The images illustrate vibrations of the cadence and the movement of captured light as it moves and repeats as patterns. The work is intended to be fun and whimsical: the paintings and sculptures create a dynamic atmosphere and mood. Through color and captured light, the paintings and sculptures  intend to create an aesthetically pleasing experience. Like music, a communal environment is created for people to come together and reconnect with something larger than themselves.”
