New Painting|An Aging Ballerina with Many, Many Flowers
When I decided to do a dance series, I started off so gung-ho and art school about it. I wanted to call Andie Hicks (I think everyone with a daughter, niece or little sister knows she’s the doyen of Kuwait’s ballet world) and sit in on her sessions. Then I thought I’d get the same result by watching videos of ballerinas dancing. Plus I’d be conducting the research in the comfort of my solitude. I also realized that one of my most prized possessions is my imagination so to couple that with actual research sends the jiggles up and down my spine. I’m very excited about this new painting and-perhaps like you-I wonder who this woman will ultimately be.
