Product description: Belly dance (Arabica dance) is a very passionate and feminine dance. There are different styles of it depending on the country of its origin. The main feature for all the styles is the muscle isolation, which improves flexibility of the torso. The best belly dancers can move their body as it were a wave. It´s what fascinates me so much about this dance and why I decided to paint a belly dancer. The painting belong to the collectiion "The dancing pictures" ABOUT "THE DANCING PICTURES" Many painters focused on a specific moment. A moment just before or after a particular event that affected or would come to affect the depicted person. One of the best examples of this concept is Diego Velázquez's painting "Las Meninas". But nothing in the world around us is constant. "Panta rei"-these words I had in mind when I was trying to give my works motion. In my painting I want to capture not specific moments but whole processes. In this case I focus on dance. My pictures from the latest series “Dancing Paintings” can be hung in different constellations. Changing their positions makes them move. Not all figures are possible all the time. Just like the human skeleton limits the body, the canvas doesn't permit the figures all motions. With my paintings I want to create a new kind of dance: painted dance. It´s my idea of kinetic painting.

ABOUT "THE DANCING PICTURES"

Many painters focused on a specific moment. A moment just before or after a particular event that affected or would come to affect the depicted person. One of the best examples of this concept is Diego Velázquez's painting "Las Meninas". But nothing in the world around us is constant. "Panta rei"-these words I had in mind when I was trying to give my works motion. In my painting I want to capture not specific moments but whole processes. In this case I focus on dance. My pictures from the latest series “Dancing Paintings” can be hung in different constellations. Changing their positions makes them move. Not all figures are possible all the time. Just like the human skeleton limits the body, the canvas doesn't permit the figures all motions. With my paintings I want to create a new kind of dance: painted dance.
