Description

Amidst the turmoil of historical events at the beginning of the past century, Russian avant-garde artist El Lissitzky observed that in art, two emerging movements were of significant importance. “Cubism and futurism seized upon the purity of form treatment and colour and built a complicated and extensive system with them combining them without any regard for harmony”.

The pieces in “Convex Mirrors” demonstrate compositional ideas which relate to the cubist analysis of space and futurist principle of “dynamism” as an expressive means. This emphasis on construction on the one hand and process on the other, suggests itself throughout the work.

“Convex Mirrors” takes the ideas formed in the previous work “Ebbs and Flows” to the next level of complexity and expressiveness. The rhythmic structures become more agile and the harmonic/melodic relations are built more strictly upon symmetrical principles. The improvisation takes place within longer segments of the unsymmetrical arrangement of time.
