I really dig this Moonlight Sonate painting by Auke Mulder. I originally thought “Sonate” was a misspelling of Sonata, but I ‘m not so sure it is. I looked up the word Sonate and it means “to make a sound.”
The reason I originally liked it was because it reminded me of Moonlight Sonata, which I’m sure I played when I was taking piano. I saw it as a cooler rendition of it than the one I played.
Auke’s work can be described as lyrical abstract and abstract-expressionistic.
“How imagination and reality relate to each other and where the origin of human desire can be found are questions that constitute my thinking. Longing is something like the Far. The Far will never be nearer. Every step to the horizon makes it move. The questions are never solved, remain open and search full of expectation for a new content and a new form. The Far is is not here neither there, unless it directs thoughts. That can be forwards but likewise backwards. Horizon extends in all directions. The Far is, like desire, not accesible, but is constituting- and starting point, is source or purpose, from which the present is coloured and gets its ultimate form. This is the philosophy that constitutes my work.”
If you dig this as much as I do, here is my link to purchase.
