Prelude and Fugue by Tanja Ackerman
“Prelude and Fugue” is a unique abstract synaesthesia painting of Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in E flat Major from the well-tempered Klavier Book 2 from my ART fugue series.
Music for your eyes!
A strong scene of sound and my synaesthesia (seeing sound) results in hues of blue, teal, flowing intricate delicate lines, and pulses of vibrant yellow.
My original abstract paintings portray the experience of seeing sound (Synaesthesia) and are performed by world-class musicians. In collaboration with acclaimed international musicians, Umberto Clerici (Cello) and Daniel de Borah (Piano) my painting “Prelude and Fugue” was performed live allowing for a wonderful shared experience for the viewer to see sound like I do.
In my experience, the music of Fugue creates a sense of anticipation, expectation, and inevitability. There is a sensation of fleeing, searching, echoing then pursuit and a chase. The music is then powerfully resolved leaving me in a state of awe and wonder. I am left with the feeling that there is so much more that we are hearing in addition to the physical performance and actual sound produced. It echoes on through time, space our minds, and bodies. The Well-Tempered Clavier, BWV 846–893, is a collection of two sets of preludes and fugues in all 24 major and minor keys, composed for solo keyboard by Johann Sebastian Bach. I suggest listening to the music when viewing my work for a complete sensory experience. (Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in E flat Major from the well-tempered Klavier Book 2 BWV 876 J.S Bach).
This abstract artwork is a wonderful talking piece and will bring life to any room. Signed with a certificate of authenticity.
