Artist's description:

“Dancing is creating a sculpture that is visible only for a moment.”
― Erol Ozan

As a life long fan of the ballet I wanted to create a series of paintings based on my colleague, and a professional dancer. In particular I was determined to capture both her grace and her strength. I didn't want to paint an ultra thin delicate flower, I wanted to show the power and emotion she is able to generate with the body.
Here she is half covered in shadow, the light highlighting her contours and features. It's also a painting which shows how relaxed and emotive her face remains, even though her body is been pushed to it's limits.

Artwork currently in Spring Gathering Exhibition in Buxton, and will be on display for the next four weeks till the 25th of April.

Materials used:
