The Fluidity of Dance

Angie Thieszen's avatar Angie Thieszen

"The Fluidity of Dance" uniquely captures the fluid motions of dancers by incorporating their moves into the pours of the favorite drinks of your evening. Did you miss the dancers the first time? Take a second look...they really are in there! The individual piece titles that make up the series of "The Fluidity of Dance" are the following: "A Shot of Salsa" (1), "Martini Moves" (2), "Cheers to Us!" (3), "Perfectly Balanced" (4) and "Smooth on the Rocks" (5). I hand draw pencil images onto poplar veneered mdf boards to eliminate the chances of the boards warping or cracking over time. I then use q-tips and cloths to "paint" the images with black wood stain before clear-coating each piece for maximum protection. The result is a moody, high-contrast piece that captures the viewer's attention and draws them into the details of the artwork.
