Linda Trope - "When I worked on this piece, the Corona virus was in its early stages, hitting New York State with a vengeance. This piece with the city skyline in the background is a depiction of that determination and perseverance to battle and subdue the virus so that people could rise up and be whole again."
The human figure as expressed in modern dance has always informed my art. Setting exaggerated poses of dance figures into fanciful landscapes or complex geometric repeat backgrounds, I achieve a painterly effect using a pointillist technique (stippling) employing archival translucent ink brush markers and small nib pens and overlaying three or more colors, working from lighter to darker colors to create increasingly intense levels of depth and color.
