The Music of Colour is a homage to Mexico. Blurring the boundary between painting, sculpture and sound, coloured drum shells encapsulate startling shades and sounds. Pink bougainvillea flowers, street markets with songs of food vendors, religious icons alongside protests. Sound within which you live at the point of tears. Beauty you feel as if a defibrillator's fastened to your eyes, a drum kit inside your soul.

Brincat is an artist who works across diverse media from video and performance to sculpture and installation. Using a variety of platforms her work explores non-verbal modes of expression through narratives or ideas. By distancing us from a logical, direct, language-based understanding, her work opens the door to multiple perspectives and interpretations.
Lauren has been exhibited widely, including Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney; The 20th Biennale of Sydney; Anna Schwartz Gallery, Sydney; Museum of Old and New Art, Hobart; Festival of Music and Art, Hobart; Next Wave Festival Federation Square, Melbourne; Seoul Museum of Art, South Korea; Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane; TarraWarra Museum of Art, Healesville; and The Department of History of Art and Architecture, Harvard University.
Her work is held in a number of collections, including the Art Gallery of New South Wales; Art Gallery of Western Australia, Perth; Chartwell Collection, Auckland; Museum of Old and New Art; and SCEGGS Redlands Collection, Sydney.
