A collaborative piece of art produced by one of the music world's best drummers.
Legendary drummer Carl Palmer, known for his influential catalog of work with Emerson, Lake & Palmer and Asia, created “Dove” through the new medium of capturing rhythmic performance and putting it to canvas in a debut collection called “Twist of the Wrist.”
Measuring 60” x 33” on canvas, “Dove” showcases the spirit of rhythm in a powerful way. Like a painter using brushes with oils, Palmer built the artwork’s visual through lit drumsticks of different colors and temperatures. From the right side, viewers will see Palmer's traditional technique as he performs on the snare and how it translates to canvas. With the left side, an eruption of light produced from working the cymbal.
