These 4 foot by 6 foot acrylic paintings came from the modern dance art form. I hope that my work has shown some of the expressiveness and gracefulness of modern dance. These dancing figures are my personal response to art in the abstraction of the human form. My abstract figurative paintings never completely divorced from the lifelike subject matter. I hope my art makes the viewer re-evaluate the very nature of the nature of the form and its possibilities for expression.
