"I Can Still Dance and Paint" is a self-portrait depicting my passion for painting, and my dance through that process over a lifetime; all of which involves risk and a baring of the truth as I see it. The paintings in this video are part of my "Desecrated Landscape" series.
This video speaks to vulnerabilities and how we go on DESPITE.....I thought of women's issues that this work touches on....immolation of women throwing themselves on the pyre, rape of women during war and conflict, abuse and trafficing. The meaning of the video reveals itself through multiple viewings.
But this video also addresses the complicated issue of turning one's back on the world and living entirely in self-absorption.
Dancing till the sun sets.
