F. Schubert, Abstract Artist

Lately I’m a devoted listener of Schubert’s piano sonatas. A great model for abstraction. Intricate and intellectually formed throughout but non-conceptual, complex and multi-layered but accessible entirely through feeling, light and full of invented forms. If one could make paintings like that! But one can. I used to listen to classical music when I was young but always felt I was missing something—couldn’t focus as well as I liked. Now it’s crystalline. The only pop musician I have time for anymore is my pal Rodney Graham.
