Original Figurative Dancer Painting entitled “Swoop", acrylic on canvas, created by northern California artist Marques Vickers in 2005. The dimensions are 28x36”.
Marques Vickers’ Flamenco and Dancer images are a fifteen-year progressive synthesis of figurative action paintings featuring stunning and passionate transitional movement. The purpose of Vickers’ works is to express the profound emotion by the performer and sensed by the audience. This transference of energy elevates both dancer and spectator amidst a properly executed dance sequence.
Vickers’ works have been exhibited internationally in art galleries, exhibitions and are part of numerous public and private collections. Praise for his work has come from diverse and numerous sources.
“Like snapshots in time the figures are captured either in contorted positions as they dance or while relaxing as they regain their strength. Yet, they all hold that spark of life that makes the difference in good work. Unquestionably these are living people, filled with energy and a real lust for life, even when in repose.” Décor and Style Magazine
"The finished works are not in themselves portraits of woman but rather symbolic representations of femininity. These women figures exude strength, whether its is exhibited in transitional dance movements or in a provocative straightforward look. They are not women to be exploited rather respected for the passionate depths they represent and exude." Contra Costa Times
