About the artwork
Music, a major theme in Coplu's paintings takes the form of a violin and music scores in this painting. Depicted in stark white lines, the musical score the figure plays his violin to is filled with vividly painted hearts and colourful flowers as they rise from his instrument and suffuse the striking magenta sky. Coplu captures a precious moment as the musical score moves through the painting with a sense of ephemerality, reflective of the nature of music and sound, its fleeting beauty.
