About the Work

Narrow angled strips and small rectangles of deep red, turquoise, pink, pumpkin, indigo and light brown, meet and overlap 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." 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 gained international success with a number of group and solo exhibitions in North America and Europe. In his work, Burton Kramer blends together different traditions of abstract art. His paintings combine visual clarity of design with rigid geometric constructions, musicality of color harmonies with optical illusions. Following in the footsteps of Wassily Kandinsky, renowned for his experiments with synesthesia of color and music, the Canadian artist understands the language of painting as a unique universal means of transferring visual impressions into a different form of reality. "My paintings are music made visual; they deal with rhythms, syncopation, tonalities and moods." 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 and an Honorary Doctorate from Ontario College of Art and Design. His work is in many private and public collections including the Royal Ontario Museum.
