This series explores the interaction between gesture and space. Just as music shapes and is shaped by the space in which it is heard, the motion of a figure or the play of light creates and absorbs the character of the space it inhabits. Each painting reflects a different type of acoustic energy resulting from the interplay of color, rhythm, and form.
Watercolors Copyright 2012 Michiko Theurer
A former violin student of Ara Gregorian, Michiko Theurer has been the artistic partner for Four Seasons for the past seven years. Her watercolors, video, and photography form the basis for a film of Lewis Spratlan’s new opera ARCHITECT that has been shown in New York and Chicago. It will be released on DVD/CD in 2012 along with her recording and gallery of watercolors based on Takemitsu’s “Rocking Mirror Daybreak” for violin duo. An active violinist, Michiko has won the Paul Rolland violin competition and the Raleigh Symphony concerto competition. She graduated from Amherst College in 2011 with majors in English and Music and is currently pursuing her Master’s degree in violin performance at Indiana University.
