The Dance by Benjamin Shine
Artist Benjamin Shine’s latest project beautifully plays with illusion and the power of creative energy with the use of translucent tulle. What emerges from the fiber are female and male faces, which quickly dissolve into the abyss and fluidity of the highly malleable tool. Titled, The Dance, the piece is suspended from ceiling and back-lit. The deep blue and pink hue of the tulle, also create a tone of lust, love, energy and passion, which seamlessly enhances the ethereal nature of the installation. With this tool, Shine is able to explore the themes of impermanence, delicacy and the beauty of the fleeting, which mimics the art of dance.
