Dancing with Paint

I know some who seem to dance with their paints and brushes (see my wife’s work!) – here’s my homage to these artists.

A dancer, emerging from the shadows, engaging with the paint splatters and patterns surrounding her. Their respective movements when combined create a rhythm. I’m curious where the next steps lead.

To make this piece, I first played with black and white acrylic paints on matboard. I photographed the result and combined with with one of my figurative photographs from my “transits” series. Finally, I applied a sepia tone to the final work. I haven’t decided yet how I’m going to print this one…
