As a lifelong student of the Indian aesthetic tradition, I've always been fascinated by an idea expressed in classical texts on painting/sculpture/dance/music (seen as one) that the painter should be able to show with the quality of his line whether or not a figure on the ground is sleeping or dead. Similarly, sculptures of the human body have to show the animating force of the breath/life energy moving through the torso.

When I collected together the images I've made in response to watching dancers, musicians, poets and actors working it occurred to me that these images are responding to that very thing - the movement of the life force through the artist's physical and expressive form. 


All of the images here, apart from the Klimt one, were made while witnessing different artists working, or in response to collaborative ideas
