Synesthesia in Painting (in Chicago)

Chicago's Morpho Gallery will highlight the paintings of Tim Vitek from May 4th - June 5th 2013, with an opening reception on Saturday May 4th from 6 - 10 pm. As the owner of Grid Based Beats, a producer of electronic music and long-time visual artist, Vitek constantly explores the relationship between visual art, sound and sensation. The illusory properties of his visual pieces encourage a contemplation of what is materially present and what only appears to be present. Vitek's work revolves around a central principle: that sound and color share a measurable system, and that this system can be applied universally. Vitek's most recent sonic works will accompany the exhibition, allowing visitors a chance to experience the sensation of synesthesia for themselves.

Morpho Gallery is located at 5216 North Damen Ave. in Chicago.
