Born with synesthesia, New Mexico artist Reyes Padilla uses his remarkable ability to paint music. He visually experiences sound and paints what he sees. Padilla’s site-specific installation transforms the Project Room into a visual expression of jazz. By painting and embracing what he sees, Padilla captures what seems like a natural dance between two worlds.
