Visual Music is an exhibition of paintings by graphic designer and painter Burton Kramer. As a designer, Kramer's clients include the Royal Ontario Museum, Reed Paper, the Eaton Centre (Toronto's most famous urban mall), and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
A modernist, Kramer's paintings pay homage to his teacher Josef Albers. "For me, painting is music. Just as music is governed by its own compositional rules and rarely references a literal story line, painting should also enjoy the same absolute dissociation from the familiar, representational world".
