Dance

Personal Work, 2022

"La danse peut révéler tout ce qui est mystérieux qui est caché dans la musique, et elle a le mérite supplémentaire d’être humaine et palpable. Danser c'est de la poésie avec des bras et des jambes."

Charles Baudelaire

"Dance can reveal everything mysterious that is hidden in music, and it has the additional merit of being human and palpable. Dancing is poetry with arms and legs."

Movement is inherent to life but showing movement in a drawing is  not easy because an illustration is a fixed image. My reflection on dance as the poetry of movement has allowed me to explore new possibilities in my work as an illustrator.
