Painting: Oil, Acrylic on Canvas.
The figure in 'Headless Wigman' is inspired by one of the dance moves from a German dancer, Mary Wigman. The photos that captures her dance moves are almost architectural. The nature of photography, capturing a moment that constantly flows, made Wigman's choreography as a still life. This painting is celebrating the transition of time and reconstructing movement into a flat image.
The painting suggests an surreal experience to the viewers by juxtaposing symmetrical flat surface and organic body shape. The paint handling was also conscious of creating depth and layers through the accumulation of flat color surfaces.
