Bach Series: Amy Kang
Color Transcriptions: Where Art and Music Meet
AMY KANG is a professional painter and cellist based in NY. She studied painting at the L'Ecole Marchutz (Aix-en-Provence, France). We're honored to feature these limited edition museum quality prints of her in demand paintings.
Bach Cello Suite No 1 in G major, Prelude (Interpretation 4)
The paintings in her Bach series are drawn from musical scores by Johann Sebastian Bach. Each stroke represents a note, and factors such as key and chordal harmony inform the color palette selected. The resulting image displays a visual illustration of harmonic motifs already inherent in the music. You can watch Kang's entire creative process in the video above.
