Illustration to Brittien's 'Variation on a Theme of Frank Bridge'
My personal Britten's adventure began a few years ago when I painted composer's portrait, which was then purchased by the Ipswich School. A new music wing was being opened in the name of Benjamin Britten. Julian Lloyd Webber was present at the opening ceremony.

In the beginning of 2016 after a chat with Agnieszka Duczmal, a conductor and director of the Polish Radio Chamber Orchestra 'Amadeus', about corroboration on a new music-art project, she suggested I painted a large illustration to one of the Britten's works. This is when I revisited the composer and his music again.
Eventually, in October 2016 I finished painting "The Illustrations to Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge'. It is a large frieze of 1.5 x 8m (it it formed of 8 canvases measuring 1.5m x 1m each).
The painting begins and ends with two portraits. On the left is a portrait of Frank Bridge, Britten's teacher and mentor, to whom the composer dedicated this work. The frieze ends with portriat of Britten himself, as a young man, at an age when he wrote the Variations. In between the two of them I painted what I found and felt the music was emanating with.
