Oil on Canvas

One thinks of ballerinas as graceful and elegant but they do not start out that way! Here I depict young dancers In a school auditorium waiting for their moment to rehearse on stage. They are fidgety, playful and anxious to dance. These postures are emphasized by the strong lighting against a velvety dark background giving a strong chiaroscuro effect. The primary group of five girls wear ‘fire’ costumes. The four girls on either side are cropped and dressed in cool subdued colors so that the ‘fire girls’ are the main focus. The title “The Elements - Fire” is based on an actual performance of “Music of the Spheres” to Edvard Grieg’s “Holberg Suite” (Opus 40).
