Chinese Ribbon/Feather Dancing Performance Paintings

This series was inspired by a study abroad trip to China. During the rainy days we would go see shows and they were amazing! The women wore these beautiful costumes that were full of color and had very ornate head dresses. They also had these very long sleeves that they would twirl around and swing them into the air creating beautiful shapes.

These paintings are created using Acrylic paint and the process of my painting is by dripping and splattering as well as brushing onto canvas. It creates a depth to the piece because a lot of layers go into making one image.
