This specific series titled “Release” is an exploration of a contemporary dance Susan choreographed. She aims to portray dance on a two dimensional surface, this is done by exploring the arbitrary uses of color and shape to depict the quality of movement to music and the emotional intent behind the dance. The dance “Release” is an internal battle with yourself and is a visual representation of the moment when a weight is lifted off of your shoulders. This bittersweet moment of letting go of the past, no matter how invested in it, and accepting the future is shown in the body language of the dancing figure. The movement is controlled then explosive depicting the act of losing and finding yourself at the same time. “Release” presents a life changing milestone, one where you release yourself from the past and understand that moving on is what is best for your life.
