There is something unearthly about this painting, a weightlessness that is joined to a mode of dance from centuries ago. Something is captured in this moment for ever.

The piece saw a long development with many revisions, all of which fhow traces in the finished piece. Its painted on a fine cotton for reasons dictated by circumstances at the time. The picturea below show an earlier stage dated 18/12/2013 revealing underlying colours and patterns (1) and an earlier watercolour previoualy sold (2).
