A Visual Fugue
John Sebastian Bach made the fugue famous in music with his
'Die Kunst Der Fugue.' My painting, 'On the Cliffs,' being a mixed
media work that overlays translucent resist of parafin and gouache
with black India ink ideograms is, in a sense, a two dimensional
approximation of the fugue, which is a muscial form involving
repetitive phrases in different voices.
