Estelle Laschever - Artist - Painter





 Music is at the core of my art work. In my monotypes, paintings, and assemblages, interacting sounds suggested by music are conveyed through the use of color, texture, line, rhythm and pattern. I believe that every color has its own sound. Groups of colors repeat and can be "heard" in much the same way that music can be experienced.

Underlying forms used in my compositions suggest structure of music. Transparent overlapping shapes hint at chords and express depth and richness of sound. Works strong in linear character evoke melodic flow and cadenzas.

Through the use of abstract symbols, as organized in musical composition to represent expressive sound, composers have suggested many aspects of humanity, of our universe, and beyond. In my work, I attempt to evoke similar thoughts and emotions.
