Key Change

The strife of colors, the sense of balance we have lost, tottering principles, unexpected assaults, great questions, apparently useless striving, storm and tempest, broken chains, antitheses and contradictions, these make up our harmony. — Wassily Kandinsky, Concerning the Spiritual in Art

This exhibition takes as its starting point the idea of key changes in musical composition. Each of the works presented asks us to consider how musical  principles are translated into a visual vocabulary. A key change represents a momentary rupture, a shift and a critical transition. Each artist’s work conveys aural characteristics which reverberate outward, stirring one to consider painting and sculpture as multi-sensory and elastic.  Just as form, color, line and surface are the chief formal properties at work, so too do the properties of lyricism, cadence, tempo, beat and counterpoint apply. The work presented converts and transmits these components into their visual equivalents.
