Artist: Will N-R


Artist Statement:
Will Northlich-Redmond’s aesthetic stems from an intensive focus on synaesthetic interdisciplinarity: creative works involving the confluence of visuality and sound. As a composer-performer and multi-instrumentalist primarily, Will’s musical endeavors portray significant elements of impactful visual expression – e.g. graphic scoring, mixed media performances, choreographed movement, videography, and interpretive conducting. Will’s visual artistic practice, currently within a digital medium, draws upon improvisation, escapism, immersion, and sonic freneticism to produce organized chaos; images of distorted reality, fantasy, and chromatic spontaneity, qualities which are ubiquitous in Will’s music. Each unique painting is printed as a series of five images.
