Male Dancers: Power and Grace

I think male ballet dancers are sexy as f*ck. When in motion, they turn their awesome bodies into pure power and grace, leaping, flying through the air in a manner one wouldn’t think humanly possible. In quieter moments, they express poetic emotions.

I have been doing paintings of male dancers for a while, experimenting with different techniques, styles and mediums. I really like my current direction. Using fat brushes and fluid paint, I try to capture the movement and energy that I see on stage. In a live performance the dancers are nearly a blur, constantly in motion; going too fast to see any detail. I attempt to capture that feeling. More development to come…

These paintings will be on exhibit in the “Cream Pies and Other Delights” erotic art fair by the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, June 12-14, 2015. 127 Prince St, New York, NY (corner Wooster St, basement gallery, use stairs from sidewalk). #powerandgrace #creampiesandart
