Piece description from the artist
This painting contains a mystical figure dancing a world into creation. The dancer is surrounded by all the elements of the universe, stars, spirals, earth, water, air and sky – in ethereal form. This abstract painting comes from my vision of Native American, Nature, and Fantasy myths, all of which have fascinated me for many years.
After a career in engineering and management, Marcia Berg Haskell retired and began to find new outlets for her creativity. In this pursuit, she began a second career as writer and an artist.
Marcia creates abstract paintings using acrylics and inks, and her work often features an emphasis on texture. In many of her paintings, she uses metallic and glittery inks to highlight details in her work, displaying emotion and feelings while using photography to capture the patterns and imagery of her world. In this process, Marcia captures natural imagery and patterns around her while developing techniques to create photographic abstractions that start with real photographic images as well as purely computer-generated images.
