Bharathanatyam Dancer


Art: Bharathanatyam Dancer by Artist Ann Radley


This painting was inspired by an informal  Bharathanatyam dance session at the Natya Leela Dance Academy in Portland Oregon.  I was attracted not only by the dancers movements, but by her long and graceful fingers and by the joy that radiates from her face.

This the first painting in a series that will explore the ancient traditional dance form of Bharathanatyam, which originated Tamil Nadu in the south of India.  This is a multi dimensional dance form containing, drama through facial expressions, rhythmic body movements, and hand gestures.
