The series Dance evolved from a deep, fascination with physics and movement. Its elegance, beauty, power, spirit… The wonderful motion of dancers holds importance to me because it is what I strive for in my work. The ability to move with one’s whole body, from the inside out, to truly let go and open oneself up to a surprising spontaneity - that comes with complete connection to the moment, all this is my process, the thing that enables my work to move, and all this is held within the body and practice of the dancer.
In the beginning of the creating of these pieces, I felt that my images were unsuccessful. I was far too controlled, too precious with them in my desire to pay homage and proper respect. While the images were drawn with adequate technique, they were failing to capture what I needed them to say. It was at this point though, looking at my mediocre work, when I felt I had nothing left to lose, which finally enabled me to make a bold move. This cannot help but elevate the work to a poignant and powerful space. You cannot simply decide to make this move, it must arise within. Should I attempt to force it, it would never work. There is a quote which I have held close for years which states, “Make bold moves, and powerful forces will come to your aid.” This has been an absolutely essential piece of my creative process. It is when we put everything on the line, that glorious place of > nothing to lose,
allows an authentic Energy to flow.
