Dancer’s Back


Watercolor on watercolor paper, 25.25″ x 19.75″ x 2.5″, framed in a dark wood frame, created in 2003. This painting is a collage. The hole in the skin is a hole in one piece of watercolor, with another piece of watercolor placed below the first piece and curved to give the illusion of an actual spine. The spine has clocks on throughout to illustrate the passage of time in the back of a dancer. This painting was one in a series of collages Gayle made from 2003-2006 showing various internal workings of the body.

This painting won the Dorothy Tabak Memorial Award for collage at the National Association of Women Artist’s annual show in 2004.

Here’s a picture of it with me so you can see what size it is!
