FIERY DANCE
Vladimir Kush

19" x 15"
Limited Edition Giclee Canvas: 325
 

The fiery blossom flaming like a torch guides us into the depths of time - straight to the fires of pre-historical people. Ritual dancing around the fire should have involved the favor of powerful spirits to ensure good luck in hunting and war. We see the hands of dancers rising upwards like flames, appealing to cosmic forces for help or protection. The magic fiery flower is transforming into a violent red dance. Circular movement symbolizes the motion of constellations around of the sun. The image of fiery dance has something in common with “Dance” - a famous picture of French artist Henri Matisse representing an ecstatic, circular dance of red nudes.
