Michael James Freedman - Artist Statement:I created this series of drawings and paintings to celebrate the extremely talented young dancers at Dancewave, a Brooklyn non-profit that connects youth dancers with top New York City choreographers. The art of dance is transitory, a figment that is gone the moment you see it. The Dancewave dancers are also in a state of becoming, becoming adults, learning how to control their movements, and coming into their own in their craft. To capture these youthful dancers in motion, I worked in a free-flowing gestural style to contrast their effervescent talent with the rigorous effort that goes into creating a work like this.
Dancewave : Reflections is Freedman's first solo show in NYC.
All proceeds from sales of these pieces go to Dancewave (www.dancewave.org) to support youth scholarships and help them further their mission.
