About the Work

Narrow bands and small rectangles of sky blue, indigo, rose, deep yellow, grey and moss green, overlap and integrate in this five feet tall acrylic painting on aluminum panel. The composition continues Kramer's theme of lyrical abstraction intersecting music, color and form. His artworks "do not abstract the experience of reality, as we know it. They provide the viewer with an alternate reality, just as music often does." Like 20th century European painter Wassily Kandinsky, renowned for his experiments with synesthesia of color and music, Kramer explores the language of visual forms and sound. 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. He gained international success with a number of group and solo exhibitions in North America and Europe and became one of Canada's most influential graphic designers. Notably, Kramer designed the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation logo in 1974. In 1999, Kramer received the Lifetime Achievement Award from Arts Ontario and in 2002 was awarded The Order of Ontario. He has received an Honorary Doctorate from Ontario College of Art and Design. His work is in many private and public collections including the Royal Ontario Museum.
