Title: Dancing With Nautili, Size 90 x 120 cm Acrylic on Canvas
I’ve been working towards a way to include the human figure for a while and this is the best resolved attempt thus far. I’ve just sold this one through Boltspace in Maitland. A collector from Newcastle seemed to agree with me. It brings together the joy of the dancer with the isolation of a practice space. Yet the freedom to imagine flowing with the nautili as she feels the energy of the dance, transcending, if just in the moment, that isolation.
I had a lot of joy in capturing the distressed, decaying room, but what I really am happy with is the light falling across the subject from left to right.
