Bach in Arts - Hommage a Bach

Art-1884

Type:

Bach Painting

Title:

BACH (6)

Description:

[by the artist, December 2010]: This painting was made in about three and a half hours the afternoon of the 10th, not counting a late lunch break and a short stroll around the block when I took photos of the bright sunlit yellow leaves of the ginkgo trees lining both sides of the street). While painting I listened once to the 3 CDs of The English Concert's recording of Bach's complete harpsichord concertos (BWV 1052-1058) with Trevor Pinnock and others of The English Concert). The music is brilliant and generally sprightly in spirit, and the lack of sustainable notes in a harpsichord seemed to have made it necessary for Bach to fill every nook and cranny of the musical space with cascades of short notes. Besides which the later concertos require two, three and lastly four harpsichords playing together! This is exciting music performed beautifully - I have loved two of these concertos since my youthful days in Ramallah - so instead of the careful leisurely transparent strokes I used in the Franck painting, I worked furiously in “real time” in a slap-dash manner, attempting to put down my reactions in shapes and colors without wasting a minute to consider the result. In any case for some time now I have been having vision problems, cataracts reducing everything I see from a distance to a slightly unfocused hazy version of what would normally be seen. So while the shapes in the painting are crisp and very strongly colored (as I could tell from looking closely at the paper), I saw the painting as a whole in pleasant pastel tones.
