This exhibition by Valentines Mansion Studio Artist and Musician Jason Rose will involve both music and paintings and the interplay between those two creative disciplines. Original musical compositions mainly inspired by nature will be playing in the gallery and each piece will correspond to a specific painting using vibration to visualise and translate the sound into weird and wonderful abstract patterns, shapes and colours which are then combined with figurative painting derived from the same inspiration as the music.
