Impressions De La Mer - Movement 2

Impressions De La Mer” - Movement 2 is an ink drawing I created. The work is an abstract interpretation of a piece of piano music which I wrote. The music which was inspired by the simple idea of two sea waves that rise to a climax and then dissipate is also the inspiration behind the artwork. The drawing uses the music as a map for its structure and content. Auditory streaming apparent in the music became visual streaming effects. Consonance and dissonance, huge factors in both the world of visual arts and music were closely considered. The piece was also inspired by the Golden mean. The drawing uses the golden ratio to determine the position of subjects within in the picture
