An Artist (no matter what form of art) is always given great personal satisfaction when he/she witness their works of art be observed, pondered, interpreted, appreciated. But for another form of art to interpret and transform his/her work of art into another medium of art is one of the greatest honours! This is exactly what will happen on March 22nd and it was the brainchild of the amazingly creative BabypeaVonPhoenix Bikergrrl (as she is known in SL).
Last summer I toured Babypea my art gallery in SL. Babypea is always a great boost for my ego as she became so absorbed with many of my artworks and the "artist comments" notecards provided with each of my artworks. After our tour she and I talked about the idea of "Wouldn't it be so cool to if some of these artworks were used as an inspiration to create dance art?".
It was such an exciting idea for both of us but as months passed, the idea seemed to be one of those that are put on the shelf never to be taken down. I never imagined Babypea not only would have executed on the idea for one of her own dances but to make an entire dance event that all dancers would create dance inspired by my art.
In February, Babypea set the challenge to all the Elysium Amphitheatre Dancers to tour my art gallery and use any artwork as an inspiration for a dance routine for the March show. The title of this challenge created by Babypea is so appropriate:
CREATION BEGATS CREATION ~ ART BEGATS ART
And now - as of this blog - I excited to introduce each of the participating Dancers as well as the artworks each of them has selected for the March 22nd event. Without further adieu, here are the Dancers and their selected inspired art they will be interpreting into dance:
Cyllene (Chrissy Rhiano)
JessLawton Resident (two artworks used)
Babypea (BabypeaVonPhoenix Bikergrrl)
Bevin (Bootygirl13 Resident)
