200. Solo dancer
Acrylics and gesso on cotton canvas 60cm h x 75cm w
"Solo dancer" was conceived when through a small window of my tiny log cabin I caught sight of a dress I'd just hung out to dry, the Tasmanian landscape rolling out beyond. Its body language was tremendously expressive and powerful, the dress completely absorbed in dancing to itself. Just had to paint it, although the material I've changed to that of a dress I remember my grandmother wearing.
