A nude couple dances the Argentinian tango in the moonlight: a celebration to the sensuality of that dance and the art of dance as foreplay.
Sixth in the "Sacred Love" series - a visual celebration of the magic, power & healing of sensuality and love; a return to that fairy tale-like moment of sweetness and connection that can be experienced, no matter how fleetingly, in romantic relationships.
As with the other pieces in the series, the figures and backgrounds are not depicted realistically, but rather are stylized to seek to capture or evoke a feeling or emotion. As such, I like to think of my work as "visual poetry".
The artwork itself is 22.5"X19.75", but it is double matted, white over terracotta brown, and has a reddish black frame.
Born in the USA, but I grew up in Chile. That land of wine, poetry, and magic inspired in me early on to create my own visual language. I call it “visual poetry”: people, landscapes and objects selected and stylized to capture an emotion. Back in the USA, in Nebraska, the solitude of endless skies and prairie drew me within to my own realms of imagination. Even though I have a Minor in Art as part of my Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, much of my work is self-explored. I got my MA in London, where I was inspired by the great masterpieces, in particular, that of Impressionistic and Post-Impressionistic artists from whom I've "borrowed" some of my techniques. Here in Los Angeles, California, where I currently reside, I continue my search to give visual expression to the inner experience of our outer world. I'm inspired by the beautiful diversity of people, the variety of environments and the vibrancy of the art scene that currently surrounds me .
