Welcome to the second gallery exhibition of my Dance Portraits series.
My first exhibition, titled “Passion”, was anchored on one central artistic goal: capturing the emotions, personality and sensibility of each subject – and creating those images only in black and white.
The current show, “Magical, Mystical, Movement and Mood”, builds on that foundation but has evolved in a number of new directions – into vibrant colour, deep and intimate duets, patterns and shapes, and into fun and fantastical body paint.
But at its heart all of my work remains deeply rooted in the core and personal emotions of each subject:
I am deeply grateful to each of my amazing collaborators in trusting me to create work that reveals their extraordinary, ideosynchratic personalities, passion and artistry. Without that trust these images would not exist.
The Dance Portraits in this Gallery Show are organized into five broad themes:
Nudes – black on black background, and black on white backgroundIntimate DuetsDynamic Movement in ColourPatterns and ShapesBody and Face Paint
There are only 2 to 3 images in the show in each of these themes, but each are part of a much larger series which you can explore either on my website here or individually with my gallery partner Alison Collins at the Iris Gallery.
I hope you enjoy viewing the images as much as I enjoyed creating them!
