Flamenco by Rosemary Colyer

The Emotion Of Dance

Flamenco is a form of Spanish folk music and dance from Andalucia, Southern Spain. It is known for its emotional intensity, proud carriage and expressive use of arms and hands, which is what I have tried to portray in this painting of a flamenco dancer.

About Miki:

Miki, a long short story...

Miki is a professional French artist, born in the Pyrenees,
Her works have been sold and published worldwide.

Her painting is a reflection of her life: a permanent oscillation between light and shadow, lines and shapes, times and places, always looking for that equilibrium which she can only find in continuous movement, in the mysterious and the unknown. A life divided between two passions: mathematics and painting. The first as a supreme form of abstract art ruling her universe... The second as a way of cementing the beauty of that art.
Miki, about herself:

'... Passionate.
I prefer dancing on a volcano rather than to sit at home!
I love the colour, the contrast, the ordered chaos, the desert and the ocean
And all that, always, fairly strewn with humour and chocolate flakes!

And who ever you are, what ever you do, which ever language you speak, I will be happy to have you on board in my boat floating upon the seas of all our universes.

Flamenco Series by Mary Machare IV of XVIII

Flamenco Series No. I


Flamenco performed in a small club off the square at night. A combination of filters and textures was used in the processing.

Flamenco Series No. II


A compilation of layers of texture with combinations of HDR techniques and posterization was used to convey the fire of the Flamenco. This photo is one of a series.

Flamenco Series No. III


The Flamenco is pure theater; the dancers intertwine, their movements and postures both intimate and dramatic. Filtering techniques with HDR, posterization and layers of textures are used to enhance the gypsy-like flair of the movements captured in a single moment.

Flamenco Series No. IV


Number IV in the Flamenco Series. Whenever I visit southern Spain, I visit small penas (clubs) and cabarets that feature flamenco music and dancing. With its controlled movements and energy, the form fitting costumes, flamenco is fascinating to the artist and a never ending source of inspiration.

The Flamenco Series celebrates the genre of music, song and dance from the region of Andalusia in southern Spain. The genre is a blend of the Andalusian and Romani music styles and is recognized by its unmistakable rhythmic patterns and tones. Flamenco performances can be found in simple concert halls and small cabarets, as well as in penas in small towns.

As for the costumes, they can be found in Seville, the capitol of flamenco, where many designers of the beautiful dresses, shawls, fans and hair pieces can be found in little shops as well as department stores.

This photo was first manipulated, then built up with layers of textures on the background to highlight the dancer in the foreground.
