This is Our Dance

Gerard Wood's avatar Gerard Wood

I chose this piece for 2021 ArtPrize and titled it "This is Our Dance" When I view this little gem, I’m struck with its movement and think of people dancing in the woods- I'm also reminded of an article I read recently on the connection we have with dance. The author suggested "Dance is the fastest, most direct route to the truth -- not some big truth that belongs to everybody, but the get down and personal kind, the what's-happening-in-me-right-now kind of truth." The article went on to say, "We dance to reclaim our brilliant ability to disappear in something bigger, something safe, a space without a critic or a judge”. Now who doesn’t appreciate that aspect of dance!
