How to create a pictorial music or a musical painting?
A music of rhythm and notes, a painting of forms and colors.
Serial paintings are the result of pictorial, geometric and arithmetic rules build on the golden section
and colour combinations or permutations based on the Fibonacci series.
Composition is the resulting scheme of harmony of proportions.
Colour is the playing result of harmony of a scale.
Matter plays with mass equilibrium.
Canvas is a dialogue between these two elements.
Ivan Sizonenko was born in Paris, France on September 1960. He has lived in Geneva, Switzerland, since December 1969.
In 1983, he obtained a master’s degree in Physics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology locatedin Lausanne, Switzerland. In 1993, he obtained a bachelor degree in Science History and Philosophy.
After a 15-year practice in art photography during 15 years, he felt the need for a more in-depth research in colour and materials. The limitations of photography techniques had him look for a richer language that would allow him to express himself more readily. This language is painting.
The need for gesture, for a physical relationship with matter, the desire for more personal colors, real or virtual, the playing on the parameters and structure of images, such as composition, colors and materials are the origin of this turning point in his life.
