Bach Memorabilia

Memo-2847

Type:

Bach Painting (Hommage a Bach)

Title:

Bach

Description:

Acrylic and ink on Canvas.
Abstract acrylic painting by Julie Richman.
This series of abstract acrylic paintings were created with the theme of Voyages. I was thinking of abstract voyages rather than actural voyages. This gave me an opportunity of explore the abstract idea of music and imagination within the concept of abstraction. I used the music of composers I am particulary fond of and listen to often. I have heard music spoken of as an abstract art form because it is total sound rather than visual. Listening to classical music lends itself to the creation of abstract art.

Measures:

Dimensions: 12" x 12"

Comments:

The Artist, talking about herself:
"Abstract Art has always been my interest. When I was a child I spent most of my time drawing abstract designs and flowers. I have always used the urban landscape is a reference point for the abstract shapes and images I create in paintings, monotypes, drawings, and one-of-a-kind artist's books. I transform what I see into an imaginary world populated by all kinds of abstraction. The shapes, colors, and buildings in the environment interest me as abstract forms. Sometimes I refer to these structures as the source of Amazing drawings and watercolor paintings that I create.
I use all kinds of abstract elements as characters in a visual drama within the picture plane, choreographed to take place during a period of time. I think of it as a kind of music.
I have consistently explored the nature of art and abstraction, using color, form, geometric and organic shapes, and symbolic references to nature and the environment in which I live.
I believe art should stimulate the viewer's imagination and provide an insight into the creative nature of life. It should enhance the life of the viewer in providing a visual experience which is unique and stimulating to their own creativity. In my view, abstraction best does this function because it takes away any reference to known things.
I hope that my art has the power to communicate and that it enriches the lives of those who view it, even though the language used is purely visual, abstract, and personal."
