oil on canvas

This work is about the feeling of being on the mat at the end of yoga, the heaviness below you and the lightness above you. It's about the awareness that you feel when deeply connected to your body, of the space outside of it. The Japanese call this awareness of negative space 'Ma'.
The top colours are bright mauvey-lilacs, the bottom deep reds with bronze underpainting. The body is incredibly glossy to evoke the feeling that the edges of the body are lit up, sparkling.
