Raewyn Turner FRENZY album cover paintingI worked as a visual artist with stage light in collaboration with Split Enz from 1975-1983. I used saturated colour, texture, after-image, and painted optical pattern slides and film loops (to create) a synaesthetic experience of music. I was their lighting and set designer on international tours working in Britain, USA, Canada, and Europe, working in major performance theatres, arenas and stadiums. I designed  lighting and sets, and directed lighting for various guest television appearances for Split Enz, and designed and directed lighting for several films and videos for Split Enz: Sight and Sound, BBC, LondonLive in Concert MTV, Nightmoves-Split Enz Channel 7, Split Enz Live at the Regent 1982.I also painted the cover for the 1979 Split Enz album FRENZY.

Examples: I See Red, Message to My Girl.
