The senses become mixed and intertwined in the mind of the artist. Sounds appear in colors, numbers sing songs and frequencies dance in her head. Synesthesia is a crossing of the senses. The paintings and works on paper are a beautiful blending of sounds, science, and nature.

Sandra Duran Wilson comes from a family of artists and scientists. She grew up in a world where everything was possible, where she would look through the microscope in her father’s office and then draw what she saw. Sandra’s early years were spent on the border of Mexico where the people, animals, landscape, drama of the religious rituals, and stories of the curanderas shaped her reality. Years later she would return frequently to Mexico and South America to absorb the culture, traditions, and art. Her spirituality combined with her scientific studies has directed her work from realism to abstract mixed media.

Her work is influenced by abstract scientific concepts in physics, biology and chemistry. The pure fun of exploring what paint can do and her natural curiosity keeps the work fresh and lively. Her work is represented in the US and Australia and is found in many corporate, civic, and educational collections and in private collections worldwide.

She experiments, paints, writes and teaches at her studio in Santa Fe, NM, and also teaches around the US, Europe and Australia. She is the author of five art technique books and several instructional DVDs.

ARTIST STATEMENT
"The collision of dimensions is a place where science encounters art through texture, color, composition, and movement. I think we live in this world of duality in order to teach us how to connect the two. The night gives way to the dawn and dreams connect the two. I love to look at life from many perspectives and embrace the duality. I dream all of my work prior to creating it. The dream state is open to all possibilities where colors become frequencies weaving the tapestry of time. Sound frequencies also weave their way into the work because when I listen to music and sounds I see colors.

I am intrigued with the creative and inspirational possibilities science offers and equally so by the mysteries of the spirit. My background in science combined with my travels in Mexico and South America, and studies with shamans and healers have played key roles in shaping my reality. I have always been fascinated with alchemy: the process of transforming something common into something precious. As a result I make many of my own papers, paints, and encaustics using common elements, and employ the transformative processes of printmaking and collage. Mathematical formulas give rise to complex, dynamic images through the dream state and inspire transformative art."
