Astonishing Ms Coops. I see this as being about parallels and reflective surfaces like chrome, only the surface is also transparent. Thus one can seem to see the object itself, also through it as well as back at ones' self. And also it has a flat matte black quality. Fascinating.

I feel that I am witnessing an icon, sculptural, a patina like certain Rodin sculptures. . . you know how he posed his models, very specifically and unnaturally. . . highly stylized, very much like a dance.

I remember seeing the Gates of Hell in Paris at the Rodin Museum. http://z.about.com/d/golondon/1/0/Y/D/-/-/RodinGates_of_Hell_detail1.jpg

This pic doesn't do the experience justice. There is movement everywhere. And even though he was trying to depict Hell and torment and all that groovy stuff, it was glorious to see in a more neutral was, for the Art. I found myself detaching the theme from the experience because I think he got the theme wrong, but the sculpture perfect. . . if that makes sense.

So with that as a point of reference, I see this as one of those figures or characters if you will. One who is like Christine in the musical Phantom of the Opera -- possessed, or even enslaved by her art, dancing in this case (or painting), endlessly driven to perfection, and further expression. In some ways it's like Hell. In other ways it is like Heaven. . .

And I must be careful lest I write way too long. The dragonfly. . . the mind boggles and races all over with this one.

Brava. :):):):):)

Lovley painting and I get the feeling they are dancing in the rain :)

Beautiful Coops, i think Caesar hit the nail on the head with the 'liquid metal' comment. It compliments the fluidity of dance so beautifully. :):)
