Moog Music 5D2A - bright, geometric abstraction, modernist, acrylic on panel

2019

$11,200

About

Rectangles and squares, large and small, in orange, mauve, blue and more, dance across a light green ground in this vibrant acrylic painting by Burton Kramer. The title of the painting refers to the Moog electronic synthesizer that became an industry standard after its use in an award winning 1968 album of music by Bach. The numbers and letters in the title of this work may refer to Moog settings. This precise, yet lively composition by Kramer reflects the intersection of music, colour and form. Kramer has commented that his 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." 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. 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.
