About

A staccato of geometric shapes in green, white and orange light up a ground of yellow and blue in this lively composition by Burton Kramer. 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. The title of this painting refers to a French baroque dance for which the likes of Bach and Chopin wrote accompanying music. 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. He is 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’ by the Province and an Honorary Doctorate from Ontario College of Art & Design. His work is in many private and public collections including the Royal Ontario Museum. "Burton Kramer’s acrylic paintings are a waltz in time, or perhaps musical chairs at the precise moment the music stops...In giving even the smallest member of the composition space, time and freedom to shine, Kramer brings harmony and balance to his utopian dance." - Roberta Fallon
