Part of Liz's ongoing series of dancers during intimate moments of concentration. Six ballerinas prepare backstage, each focused on their own rituals - stretching, tying pointe shoes, checking makeup. We are brought into the scene through the main figure in the foreground, her back to us and her body language suggesting that she is visualizing the performance ahead.
San Francisco, California
Liz is a self-taught artist who is inspired by the graceful movement of the figure. She paints both from her own photographs and from life. One of her favorite subjects, the dancer, exemplifies a celebration of the female form and the artist’s personal love of ballet. Liz’s paintings are emotional and even raw, capturing each subject with active line- and brushwork. She does not assign an intended interpretation or narrative to her paintings; “I think that each viewer brings their own response to my art, and I don't care to 'mess' with their vision and experience.”
