Beyond the Surface is a collection of paintings by Mary Pettis originally created to be presented in tandem with a performance of Claude Debussy’s Images for Orchestra, performed by The Minnesota Orchestra. In this show, Pettis celebrates the return of representational art to the realm of musicality. The accompanying annotations encourage the viewer to draw parallels between the languages of paint and music, using individual movements of Debussy’s Images as examples.
The purpose of this exhibition catalog is to enhance the reader’s perception of both visual art and music as expressive tools that communicate in parallel ways. It is an invitation to the viewer to find the music within the images, to understand the vehicles of expression and the different means by which they manifest.
