Concerto

Concerto gives a sense of lightness and balance. The composition is loosly figurative and the work conveys the feeling and energy of a musical opus. As with cubist artworks, the violins are broken up, analyzed, and re-assembled in this abstracted form.

More Information

As with cubist artworks, the violins are deconstructed, analyzed, and re-assembled in an abstracted form. Instead of depicting the violins from one viewpoint, I have depicted them from a multitude of viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context. The surfaces intersect at seemingly random angles, removing a coherent sense of depth. The object planes interpenetrate one another to create theĀ  ambiguous space, which is one of cubism’s distinct characteristics
