Description Dance Motion is a series of acrylic paintings of dancers in movement. This figurative paintings represents energy through human motion and emotions. I dare into breaking, lengthen and deforming the extremities in the figures to represent the force of energy through dance. Four elements influence me to create this paintings: Earth, Fire, Water and Air. This artworks empower oneself values to reach beyond our limits. The dancers are strong, powerful and full of energy.
Karina Llergo, Northbrook, IL Member Since November 2013 Artist Statement I work to find fresh ways to evoke energy through human motion by turning human figures into fluid.
I experiment with the reactions that occurs by pouring acrylics on canvas, letting the flow dictate its way by moving the canvas in different degrees, I let the colors blends gradually into each other just in time to alter its course by throwing mediums such as water, alcohol, ink, salt and oil.
Dance, air and water influence my work. From dancers I take the beautiful mobility of their bodies, from air, its provoking rhythmic motion and from water, its captivating deconstructed reflections.
I know a piece is completed when I close my eyes and feel its rhythm of dance, water and air singing in harmony.
