About Radiant

Precise vertical bands of orange, indigo and canary yellow on a green ground beat in unison in this lyrical painting by Burton Kramer. Kramer has observed that his lyrical abstractions "do not abstract the experience of reality, as we know it. They provide the viewer with an alternate for reality, just as music often does."

Kramer trained at Yale University (MFA), The Institute of Design at the Illinois Institute of Technology (BSc), The Royal College of Art, London (Fulbright Scholar) and The State University of New York. Kramer is one of Canada's most influential graphic designers. He designed the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation logo in 1974. Kramer has received a Lifetime Achievement Award from Arts Ontario, The Order of Ontario by the Province, an Honorary Doctorate from Ontario College of Art & Design and named Member of the Order of Canada. His work is in many private and public collections including the Royal Ontario Museum.
