John B. Aird Gallery, Toronto

December 12, 2017 to January 5, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday December 14, 6 – 8 pm

Evelyn Rapin’s work is part of a group exhibition in Toronto starting in December. It belongs to a series that reflects the creative process used by certain composers.

As with most works of art, the process starts with an idea, which is further developed and expanded to produce a complete, cohesive whole. The lower work represents the initial idea — the starting off point — and the upper work represents the completed composition.

Featured piece: Composition Series: Musical Line I

Musical Line I: Aaron Copland writes that some composers start with a musical idea for a composition. He claims the composer “likes to see the way [this idea] rises and falls, as if it were a drawn line instead of a musical one…[the composer] may even try to retouch/ improve it, just as you might in drawing a line.”

Mixed Media. Acrylic/gypsum/chalk pastels/gesso on Masa Dosa handmade deckled Japanese paper. Two are mounted in one frame. Each image/paper is 23 x 18 in. Completed work: 26 x 40 in framed. Price: $2000
