In this playful, modernist composition by Toronto’s Burton Kramer one narrow panel of colourful geometric shapes in turquoise, pink, lilac, gray-blue and red appear like notes on a musical scale. Kramer explores the language of visual forms and sound much like the 20th century European painter Wassily Kandinsky, renowned for his experiments with colour and music. One of a series. “Instrumentally produced, multi-layered sound offers the listener sensory pleasure. In my paintings, colour and forms, integrated in a structure-based composition, provide a similar pleasure.” Burton Kramer He is one of Canada's most influential and gifted graphic designers.
