Artist's Description

‘Cry of the River’ – a triptych.

A “soundscape” of rain and thunder, water interacting with rock and plants, and mingling with birdsong.

Wild river,
over and over,
the sound of white.
Reeds and river
weaving the mist together.
Each rock in the stream
has its own sound.

This painting attempts to portray the sound of water in an ecological context - the way the geography of the world itself makes sound. There is something elemental, and powerful, and pure, in the sound of a wild river flowing. The sounds do not exist in isolation, but in conjunction. In this work - an attentive description with a touch of synaesthesia* - the elements of the ‘geophony’ are placed in strategic resonance with one another.

* someone with synaesthesia may hear colour or see sound
