Ashley G Garner - Synaesthesia
IFAC Arts and The Yard present SYNÆSTHESIA, new works by Ashley G Garner. October 25, 2017 - February 28, 2018
The synesthesia phenomenon is traditionally said to be the confusion of senses; like hearing color or feeling pain from sound. Garner has synthesized dyes, influenced by color psychology, with symbolic flora to elucidate this phenomenon in viewers through a six part series exploring the Solfeggio frequencies, an ancient six-tone musical scale speculated to have healing properties.
Ashley G Garner is a conceptual photographer and filmmaker residing in New York City. Raised in the foothills of North Carolina an adoration with fantasy and the sublime effect were bred. Coupled with degrees in Photography and Art History from Florida International University in Miami, FL and a background as a writer she cultivated a balance between structured forms and poetic rebellion. Working across multiple artistic platforms which include still life, editorial, figurative, video and self-portrait’s Ashley’s work dances with many conversations that stretch from the social to the metaphysical world with themes of duality, mythology, and transcendental symbolism.
