©2010 St.Hilaire Nelson / collage of hand painted papers on panel / 20x24
All the Flamenco music I have been listening to lately has inspired me, and all the compliments on the dancer made me want to do one more in this genre. I have been saving photos of dancing feet for a while, in hopes of capturing the spirit of dance.
My dear friend Barbara Dunham, the president of the Atlanta Collage Society, has been encouraging me to consider an abstract approach to my style for quite some time. Barbara is a wonderful abstract collage artist herself. She said, "Elizabeth, I'm not asking you to change your style, just to consider experimenting with adding an abstract edge to it."
Well Barbara, this one is for you. I was thinking about your advice and the recent sample of Derek Gores (another FL collage artist whom I have had the pleasure of meeting and seeing his work in person) work you sent this week when I was collaging this Flamenco skirt!
Now, does anyone speak Spanish? Need help with the title...
