Allison Loggins-Hull is a “powerhouse” (The Washington Post) flutist, composer and producer whose work defies classification and has been described as “evocative” by the Wall Street Journal. This season she brings “Diametrically Composed,” a collection of newly commissioned works featuring flute, voice and piano exploring the duality of being a mother and an artist. Being an artist-mother is fulfilling, rewarding and unpredictable—full of love, beauty and constant learning. Caring for and cultivating the development of someone else’s life is a privilege and artistically inspiring. While our children inform our art, our art informs our children, and the steady current of energy generated from the two creates a distinct and flourished experience.
Though “Diametrically Composed” revels in the exuberance of being a mother and an artist, the work also confronts the notion that motherhood and professional life can be limiting factors in their interaction, in ways that fatherhood and professional life are not necessarily. The work aims to artistically probe and unpack this double standard.
