The Goldberg Variations
30x 40cm oil/ wood
32 oil paintings on wood panel, inspired by the Goldberg Variations of J.S.Bach.
In 2018 I was invited by Kati Raitinen to be the guest visual artist of the
Äntligen måndag! chamber music series in Stockholm. Our collaboration inspired this series of 32 paintings, one for each movement, to be projected during the concert performance. As a visual concept to encompass Bach's masterpiece of symmetry and emotion I chose this photo of Instanbul, taken from the ISS on the 9th of August, 2012. Here Europe meets Asia, split by the river Bosphorus which has been flowing since prehistory. But it is our humanity which has given it the contours that underline a new geography.
