Artist's description:

Indian dance. A fascinating subject I love to return to for the body language. Here I have a male dancer and musicians.
There’s lots of skin to work with, and a chance to blur the cloth for movement. The thick parchment paper takes nicely to paint dripped onto it so this becomes a major abstract effect I like to use.
The paper I use is a traditional mulberry paper handmade in Thailand. Mulberry leaves are used there to feed the silkworm in the silk industry, the sticks used to make the paper. The resulting paper is a thick parchment paper, strong yet pliable.The close up picture is of higher resolution to be able to get a feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a portrait, family portrait, a storyboard collage from a recent travel, event or performance? Contact me.
