MelissaMcCracken “If I Was a Bird”

Melissa McCracken paints what she hears, titling each of her abstract oil paintings after the songs that inspired the work’s expressive gestures and bright punches of colour.


The Kansas City-based artist has a neurological condition called Synesthesia, which causes her sense of hearing to trigger colourful depictions of songs and genres. For McCracken, jazz music appears as iridescent blues, whites, and golds, while an upbeat pop song is bright pink and purple.
