Johannes Bosgra’s main inspiration is contemporary classical music. When he sees a landscape, he hears music in his head and vice versa; they
flow into each other. Music and image originate from the same source. In collaboration with composers and musicians such as Philip Glass,
Bosgra creates Gesamtkunstwerke of his visual art and classical music. And he plays piano himself.
Bosgra created a videowork of his Stripes series for composer Philip Glass and pianist Feico Deutekom. It was premiered in 2020 at the CD
release concert of the new CD Musical Offering by Philip Glass his own composers label in De Melkweg Amsterdam. In 2021 he created the
videowork Verklärte Nacht, that premiered at Museum Voorlinden in Wassenaar (NL).
