Following an invitation to write a new piece for MusicArt London, it was a huge pleasure to visit Christopher Le Brun’s studio to find inspiration in his recent abstract paintings, sculptures and woodcuts, many of which are now featured in the exhibition ‘Colours’ at Colnaghi gallery. The solo piano piece that emerged from this experience, Abstracts, is a continuous work in four linked sections that represent different layers of immersion in the art: specifically, by observing a painting from different distances.

Abstracts was first performed by Annie Yim at Colnaghi Gallery on October 21st 2015.
