These paintings are an ongoing developement from a few earlier series
where I was using still frames from a film I had made of two professional dancers performing naked in my studio:
and The Dancers II
In the following collection, The Hungarian Dancers
, I used some different parts of their dance and I used strong primary colours as their background because dancers dance to music - and for me line and colour are the visual interpretations of music.
I then went on to develop The Blue Collection
The Red Collection
Both of these are based on a video I had made with two new dancers. All the paintings in the Red Collection are considerably larger than my previous works and are being framed in gold behind glass.
Recently I have been working on a series I call Women Dancing 2012
This is based on a video of two girls from the Hungarian National Dance Academy that I made before leaving Budapest. I now live and paint in the South of France.
