About the artwork
Music is a major theme Coplu explores in his paintings, often taking the form of instruments and music scores that appear in various surreal symbols. This piece depicts a figure dressed in a formal tailcoat adopting the role of a conductor, caught in the midst of a wave as he sends off a group of three on the tail end of a note. Depicted in the stark white lines, the musical score this figure plays to is filled with vividly painted hearts and gentle white flowers in the formation of a heart, tender, loving, yet felt intensely at the same time.
