Movement, ecstasy, yearning—all are revealed in the dance. All draw me into the world of these artists. The dancers open up, they reach out, they stretch towards heaven, all the while focusing deep inside themselves. These partners know the physical moves and music so well that their subconscious is free to come out to play. As I watch, I see glimpses of their souls, and I vicariously move with them. Their art expression leads me to look inside myself at my own art and creativity with new eyes.
This ongoing body of work has and is challenging me to grow as an artist and as a human being. I’ve experimented with new techniques and with using techniques I know in a different way, always learning. I feel myself being asked by each piece to look into my very soul, as I see the dance artists doing, and there to discover the multiple facets of my own humanity—my unfolding, my stretching, my passion, my strength, my revelation.
