Kits

 

Alexandria Tarver’s “Kits”  is a series of small-scale paintings of the drum kits of various indie and D.I.Y. bands playing around Brooklyn and New York between 2012 – 14.  Drawn to the ready-made still lives which the drums present, as the only instruments on view before a band comes on stage, Tarver captures the potential energy of these varied shapes and forms before it transforms into the kinetic energy of the performance.
