Art of Fugue
Art of Fugue: BWV 1080
Elizabeth Harington's colophonic interpretation of Bach's mighty Art of Fugue is a fascinating journey into the artist's mind and aesthetic sensibilities, both clearly formed by her remarkable history and artistic skills. The transformation of Bach's own autograph pages in circular lens like designs, each quite different, realizes in print-form an aspect of Bach's attempt to create symmetries in the structure of time. Harington is not concerned with the surface of appearances of the Fugues -- in Bach's language, their sound - but with their inner natures, the myriad relationships of their internal dimensions.
