Mixed media with oil paint, textured paper and oil pastels on canvas
Inspired by colorful costumes from the Mariinsky theatre’s ballet I visited years ago. I used textured paper and oil pastels as well as original stamps from Saint-Petersburg, Russia to create layers. Colorful spheres become a source of movement, just like the dancers dresses. On, it moves, like air.
