Limited Edition Giclée printed on Canson Aquarelle Rag, Edition of 100
Artist: Paola Minekov
Original, Oil on Canvas: Private Collection
The physical movement the artist is so fascinated with has never been more geometrical than in the painting that inspired this giclee print. Elongated, thin limbs of dancers intertwine in dynamic gesture, but here - they are in service of the visual. The limbs are in fact diagonals and intersecting lines that hold the composition together, but also bring the scene to life. Complemented with thick brush strokes and texture that add to the overall energy of the work, this piece can be seen as a complete visual abstraction of dance. Predominantly warm tones of ochre are broken with highlights of amber and light brown, applied with a knife in a facet-like manner.
