THE SUN SMELLS TOO LOUD / 2020

colour pencil, paper

From the ongoing "Mountains Beyond Mountains" Series.

This title, "The sun smells too loud", is from a song of Mogwai, which I like very much. It is also an evocative of the psychological disorder known as "synesthesia," in which a person senses stimulus in a cross-sensory way. A person with synesthesia might perceive the letter "V" as being "purple," or might associate the smell of fish with a train whistle, or might think that the taste of green beans feels scratchy, or other random sensory non sequitur.
