l’arabesque series…

2007-2010 paintings

a friend in france looked at my drawings and said they reminded him of l’arabesque, the arabic style calligraphy. what i find interesting is that “arabesque” is also a position in dance, bringing together my influences quite nicely. this page r more of the arabesque in painted form. they take much much longer than the drawings to do and r scaled up much larger than the drawings.
