Painting: Oil on Canvas.
Size: 48 H x 35.8 W x 2 in
I have created a series, moving my interest in narratives to the subject of dance; This began with the painting ‘Personae’. Personae is a representation of myself, it represents the many masks or personae that I wear in my busy life and the many jobs and different roles I had at a particular time. I then moved this concept into classical dance and the personae or characters they take on in order to represent the story of that particular dance. I looked at classical dance in particular due to the sculptural forms the dancers often take on.
