Acrylic painting of a duet against a botanical background

Torque by Gabrielle Lord

  • I wanted to convey the emotional intensity and physical tension of holding a strong pose in this piece. I enjoy observing body shapes, like pieces of a puzzle. I am inspired by many different styles of dance but the inspiration for this one was ballet. Using acrylic paint, which dries quickly, allows me to layer, and I often leave areas where the underpainting shows through, and redraw on top of paint in charcoal, before fixing under varnish. the painting comes in a simple handpainted wooden frame with D-rings and cord attached on the reverse, ready for hanging.

    40x40cm canvas, plus frame
