About the work:
Ember, Original Artwork by Daniel O’Toole.
This piece is part of Cascade Rumble, a solo exhibition by Daniel O’Toole.
O’Toole’s latest collection presents the intricacies of the colour spectrum, magnified and manipulated to create works that pulse and glow. Discretely placed mirrors allow each piece to reflect back on itself, blurring the line between artwork and frame. In this way, each work is influenced by its surroundings, with ambient light altering the perceived surface, which combined with the vibrant colours creates a sense of dynamic movement from within the static work.
”Cascade Rumble is a series of works intended breathe and hum a frequency of sound that resonates in the mind, the sonic considerations of colour and their inter-connected relations are a subtle study of Synaesthesia,” O’Toole says. “Looking into what it offers us, in terms of developing new ways to interpret and understand both visual and auditory frequencies. ”
