About Springsong

Like a musical score, this composition of overlapping horizontal bars sprinkled strategically with tiny squares -- in tones and tints of blue, green, yellow, maroon and grey -- moves the viewer to contemplate their emotional response. Kramer's precise 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 explores the synesthesia of colour and music not unlike 20th century European painter Wassily Kandinsky for whom "Tone = Timbre; Hue = Pitch; Saturation = Volume."
