Polyrhythms

Polyrhythm (noun): The simultaneous use of two or more conflicting rhythms, that are not readily perceived as deriving from one another. Polyrhythms require two or more rhythms to be played concurrently, one of which is typically an irrational rhythm. This body of work depicts this musical concept via the formal aspects of the work itself. I am interested in the endless deconstruction of the body and the possibilities of figural compositions starting from a classical pose. The fragmentation and rearrangement of the body relates to the idea of how human kind, when in a position of power, will threaten, attack, and demoralize, but is also capable of commemorating, applauding, and celebrating each other. The black patina of these works, mimicking the color of many bronze monuments, memorializes these wide-ranging actions that, for better or worse, are historically repeated.
