“The title “Music of the Spheres” was initially inspired by the Second Movement of Beethoven’s Fifth. In that work, Beethoven is painting a music picture of the vast cosmos which is the backdrop out of which the drama of man’s search for freedom is played out.” – William Bishop
In the Music of the Spheres series of drawings, Bishop merges the specific nature of his Dreamtime realist paintings, with the Universal Energy he portrays in the abstract Micro Color Expressions. According to Bishop.
“When I think of the timeless “Absolute,” I pick drawing with its austere and rarified aspect. The drawings have an overarching aspect and have always been within me. They, therefore, stand-alone and first in my mind and in many ways, do not relate to anything else I do.” – William Bishop
