Het Strijkkwartet (Gerard de Bruyne), ansichtkaarten
12 postcards in a beautifully designed folder. To send, give or treasure.
Long lines, careful lines, lines that question each other, hard strokes, short strokes, pointed, scratchy, abrasive, breaking down and building up, chaos, order, silence, funny, serious, warm but also icy and unpleasant, soft and sensual.

All this and much more is the canvas of a string quartet. When Gerard de Bruyne was asked to make a series of drawings by Matangi, this canvas formed the basis of his drawing.

Die sieben letzten Worte - Haydn | VII LW

What could be a bigger challenge than giving musical expression and shape to "Die sieben letzten Worte", the seven last sentences that Jesus spoke on the cross: giving feeling and articulation to the most charged text in the world, but without the words? Haydn did this more than successfully in 1787 with these seven string quartets.
