Biography

Time as it is so often described may exist or it may not, but there are breaks in the continuum; it is the cadence. The interval can be fast (atoms disintegrating) or slow (the birth and death of stars), but interval it is.

Life as we know it is pandemonium based on the unceasing modulation of the cosmic plane. This is why rhythm is so basic to our psyche. We live by it; the tick tock of cadenza is how we repeat ourselves to the stars.

We are millions of souls creating our own beat; like intertwining and never-ending fractals writing against the score of the sky. It is throwing stone after stone skipping across a pond, the prayer wheels of Tibet and the drums of Africa.

It is the allegory for the rhythm that is created by humans to match the heartbeat of the cosmos.

Peter Frantz is a third generation artist, born in Tyrone, Pennsylvania. He attended the University of Notre Dame, Goddard College and attained his Master of Fine Arts degree from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2007.

He is an artist who emphasizes the use of drawings and printmaking for the narrative. His three-dimensional art employs multiple man-made and natural materials, such as roots, trees, glass and cast bronze, in combination with video, light and sound to stress the use of art as means of conversation; with ourselves, with others, with the universe.
