Bright swirling colors, intricately interwoven lines morphing into sleek harmonius forms ‘ the mesmerizing kaleidoscopic images of Rochester, New York-based multi-talent Andy Gilmore have a futuristic, almost alien feel to them. His designs transcend straightforward aesthetic beauty, their forms inhabiting a realm of mathematical complexity, containing a certain geometric musicality.
The ‘musicality’ of his works is more than a coincidence ‘ Andy Gilmore is also a musician. Deeply interested in the physics of sound and acoustics, his work reflects just that. In these pieces, Gilmore explores the physical properties of tone ‘ the resonance of a single string creating a range of vibrations and sound waves, both audible and inaudible ‘ and mirrors that relationship visually, producing complex images with overtones swimming through undertones, melodies dancing with accompaniment.
Composed primarily of bold and bright colors on black backgrounds, Gilmore’s hypnotic forms seem to hover like spacecrafts ‘ out-of-this-world figures of elaborate and sophisticated design. More than a participant in the rising trend of digital art, Andy Gilmore is an innovator, dreaming up works that, without computers, could not exist.
Andy Gilmore currently lives and works in Rochester, New York. His graphic design clients include The New York Times, Dazed & Confused Magazine, Wire Magazine, and many others.
