Original Art Work
- A truly transformative piece whereby, the completion of it, culminated in the midst of a pandemic. Truly the discovery of a higher love for the SELF. Liberty. Liberation from the invisible shackles our human race is plagued with. The first piece of a series that encouraged me to explore the emotive responses that come with different variations of movement. It took immense discipline to stay true to the lines, and each septet, the 7 chakras, intentional movements to address the nurturing or in some cases “unblocking” of each chakra. A form of intentional, rhythmical release. This piece taught me the significance muscle memory plays in achieving the perfect lines, but above all I felt the most familiar connection to the athlete in me with the “artist”, the mental memory of that guided me to the finish line. Preparing the perfect set up in my space, calculated in every step, precedes precision, not to far different from hitting the perfect forehand, both demanding a fluid choreography of the body. Remarkable.
