The Dancer Paintings

The Dance paintings were painted on the Big Island of Hawaii during the winter of 1999/2000 and were commissioned by K2 for use on their El Dorado snowboards.

The drawings – studies and explorations of various dance scenes – were separate from the snowboard project. The first two, #s 1 and 2, were planned out. The third, measuring approximately 144 inches in length, was painted in ink in one continuous length without any sketches or lines to follow.
