Little Dancer, handcut collage 100/70cm.

in #art5 years ago


Still another handcut collage from my Street Saints series, i decided to present them all in a row of posts. I must admit i am not sure if i presented any of them at Steem in the past, if so you must forgive the repost. At least the text and thoughts are new.


Little Dancer is the largest in size artwork and technically i am very happy with the work done. The colour patterns are minimal and very balanced, the aspect ratio of theme/background also good and there is a lot of motion that makes the artwork come alive. I used the sepia winterscape for the skin and a lightly patterned fabric image fro the cloths, also a lot of jewelry hanging from every place possible. My inspiration was a black and white photograph of a wounded child soldier, a really shocking image that i tried to alter with my art and create a new feeling to the viewer. I created it back at 2011 and after all these years and seeing again a war starting in my area, i can only imagine how many more innocent victims we will see.



Awesome job! Have you ever taken any Expressive Art Therapy (EAT) classes or participated in any EAT sessions?

Thank you very much, no i did not taken any EAT classes. But i make some workshops teaching my art to others who found it very relaxing and mind-easing:)

It looks beautiful, reminds me orient with its rich jewellery varieties. It is a sad story behind your Artwork, it is a shame that still there are so many children suffering from war. I like the combination of gold-orange background and ice blue stones :)

Thank you so much dear Stef:) It looks indeeed oriental, more or less all the series bring this out eventhough it was not the original plan. I think the rich motifs and the jewllery played a big part in this.
