CATCHING THE BEAT
I have started a new series of abstract works that I plan to call the Salsa Series. It is inspired by syncopated beat that is different from the standard four. Instead it goes 1, 2, 3, pa 5, 6, 7 ah... or something like that. It´s the key or clave to syncopated rhythm. Hoped to catch the spirit visually. Catching eight beats to the measure means in my mind that you´re going twice as fast and unless you learned to walk to this beat it will likely mean scrambling to get there. My works will look a bit abstract, somewhat scrambled. Hope it will be felt o sensed, maybe contagiously so... but that´s probably just a dream. We will see what comes of it.
