New painting ' Music In Motion 3' 18" x 30" Acrylic Painting on Canvas.
Much like the other Music In Motion series, I wanted to continue to explore the idea of the frozen moment of action. Capturing bot the pose and the graceful actions of ballet which are often held for moments during a dance. The stillness of the frozen moment is contrasted by the downward moving dripping paint, which adds the feeling of movement to the static image of the dancer.
The figure in the painting is not implied nude, unlike many of my other work and is wearing a ballerina's outfit. Though the footwear is not overly evident, the tutu does take center-stage in the image, creating not only a very colorful addition to the scene, but also adding to the flow of movement in the painting. I was always concerned with adding the complexity of layers of clothing to the Psychameleon but it just feels right and ended up coming out just as I envisioned it which is definitely always a plus.
