Pas de deux 18 from the Dance series was selected for the Copley Society of Art’s juried show, Renewal. The juror was Meg White, Director of Gallery NAGA, Boston.
Dance, like music and humor, is a time-tested means of renewing body and soul. In the Dance series, I use normally shed plant material and other found objects that even when static appear to move, to create dance poses, place them within miniature stages lit by ambient light to create a dimensional effect, capture these ephemeral installations in-camera, and with minimal post-processing, print on canvas. Hence the name of this medium, “Mixed media collage captured in 2D, archival pigment inks on canvas.”
What you see is what I saw. I believe in creating in real-time, not after the fact. Why? Just because I choose to do it. This is not a moral stand!
Pas de deux 18 is a perfect example of the Dance series. This is an edition of one, the original, no copies will be printed. Shown below is a snapshot of the 13 x 19” wood-framed, canvas artwork.
