The muse behind this painting – Beethoven’s quote:
“Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.”
I was asked to do a modern painting on music, other than that I was allowed to express it any way I wanted. The black rectangles represent perspective (even metaphorically) but also the piano keys. Today everything is being done digitally but the very best of music was composed on this wonderful instrument, it just had to be there in some form. The figures also represent some of the emotions which music evokes.
