paintings 2009 - 2011
The ‘dance’ is a reoccurring theme in my narrative paintings. Figures interact in a café, on a theatre stage, high wire in a circus arena, under turquoise water, in a swamp or an amusement park. These expressions of mythical characters and environments explore the dynamics between beauty, humor, mystery and potential uneasiness in a stopped action moment; focusing on the energy and spaces created from the movement between the figures in each unfathomable scenario.
