I think it is a very clever and suggestive statement, and we can read it as an invitation to produce vivid paintings, but colour/light and sounds are different physical phenomena, not influenced by each other and that our body reads with different “tools”. Yet biological and cultural elements create connections between them that we cannot ignore and our language, in an attempt to describe them, often mixes images and sounds. So we might say that a painting has a clear rhythm, or that composition has dark tints. An image can be noisy, or a song very colourful. It’s just another way to discuss and share something really hard to put into words, and in many cases, it is useful to find a common ground and introduce someone to a lesser-known language. By the way, I don’t think the process of abstraction in painting has a founder or a beginning date and I don’t want to recognize the juxtaposition of figurative and abstract images. For me, it’s all part of the same representation and narration which have been with us since the beginning. However, there is no doubt that the painters from the last century, such as Kandinsky, played a crucial role in opening Pandora’s box.
