Ellen Hackl Fagan



Artist Biography

Ellen Hackl Fagan is on a quest to make sound visible. Working with saturated colors when painting sensitized her to color’s communicative nature. Building connections between color and sound through abstract paintings, photography and interactive digital technologies, she seeks to create a synaesthetic language that pairs color to sound. She is developing The Reverse Color Organ and the ColorSoundGrammar Game, two interactive projects that enable viewers to explore the aural potential of color.

Her process walks the balance between randomness and intention, like jazz music, revealing limitless possibilities for improvisation. Fagan exhibits her artwork throughout the greater New York metropolitan area and northeast, and maintains her studio and curatorial practice in Harlem.

Ellen Hackl Fagan is the owner of ODETTA, an artist run gallery in Greenwich, CT and NYC.
www.odettagallery.com Ellen also serves as Director of Sales SHIM Art Network http://www.shhhim.com.

    Into the Blue Again, is a solo exhibition of Hackl Fagan's saturated blue paintings on paper. Exploring the nature of synaesthesia through immersive environments, Fagan works with a saturated blue pigment, and employs printmaking, and photo-gramming gestures. She positions the paintings as if they’re hovering, just barely off the floor, horizontally.

    Real Art Ways , in Hartford, CT is mainstay institution in New England, at the forefront of alternative multidisciplinary arts and innovative exhibitions, now celebrating its 40th anniversary year. There are four galleries exhibiting artists' works, three solo exhibitions, and one group exhibition, curated by David Borawski.

    Real Art Ways is open daily 2-9 pm, and by appointment. Please refer to Real Art Ways  for dates and detail of related events to take place during the run of this exhibition.
