Olesya Dzhurayeva, Ernst Kaps, 2011, linocut on paper, 50 x 77.5 cm
Graphic’s name comes from the piano brand Kaps or Ernst Kaps Pianofortefabrik which was founded and produced in Dresden (Germany) in 1858 by Ernst Karl Wilhelm Kaps. He was appointed in 1879 an honorary member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music.
Artist choose the piano’s brand that will always fight against the oblivion like the music is doing itself. Music creates sounds that we remember forever. Looks like all the thoughts artist was having here are concentrated on eternity and a piece that should be part of it. Music is laud but it remains the silent after it's finished and on another hand music never stops cause the sounds always stay in our subconscious.
