Wassily Kandinsky, the father of abstraction, is believed to have had synaesthesia, a harmless condition that allows a person to appreciate sounds, colours or words with two or more senses simultaneously. In Kandinsky’s case, colours and painted marks triggered particular sounds or musical notes and vice versa.
“Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.” – Wassily Kandinsky

“I wanted not only that the painter moves, but also the painting“. – Alfons Schillings.
In the 1960’s, the Swiss born, Vienna based painter Schilling, influenced by American “action painting”, became one of the first artists interested in ‘Rotationsbilder’ (spin-paintings); paintings produced on large vertical discs, turning at speeds up to 3 times a second. This technique has been used since by many artists including Damien Hirst.
