Dancing Pants - Art


Dancing Pants is a dark piece dominated by deep, highly saturated colors. Movement is suggested by the sets of lines that make their way across the painting in several directions. This suggestion of motion gives the painting life and energy, evoking a frenetic, exuberant dance. The powerful nature of dance and its effects on the human psyche is captured in the strong, energetic lines of this painting.
Dancing has played a role in many different aspects of human culture throughout history. For example, dance is a significant factor in many religious rituals. Dancing is also a popular social activity, as well as a highly refined art form with many genres and styles. Dancing Pants captures both the grace and the power of dance, one of the oldest performing art forms in the world.
