A resource for contemporary fine art

Elizabeth Harington is a mystical artist who has for many decades been using the etching process to explore her deep interest in the music of Bach. As it turns out, according to her research, Bach was a printmaker too! In her words:


Bach represents my culmination towards the revelation that art and music are purely synthesized. This discovery began through the works of the Indian Poet Rabindranath Tagore who also lived in the one of music and art.


Bach, an intimate of the printing process saw the mirror symmetry of print to plate and the one of opposites. Bach keenly played out these reflective images in all his musical compositions and named such a series The Mirror Fugues.


Bach's meaning of the contrapuntal reflects greatly upon a musical kaleidoscopic of mirror rotations of mechanical musical bits. The Well Tempered Clavier involves rotated bits much as the Three Parts Invention and Art of Fugue does.
