The Passion of Dance – Ltd Edition Hand Embellished Print


The Passion of Dance is a multi-award winning fine art contemporary oil painting of beautiful ballerina dancer Drew Jacoby, created entirely using a knife with a limited colour palette, mixing only on the canvas, as is my trademark style. Produced in collaboration with Drew and exceptional photographer Marty Sohl. It’s such a passionate, powerful composition with a hint of sensuality. The deep shadows in a chiaroscuro technique create atmosphere and further emphasise the drama and emotion. The perfect gift for yourself or someone special.

The Passion of Dance was judged as ‘1st Place in Traditional Art’ and given a special merit ‘Inspirational’ award in the Traditional category, given another special merit ‘Excellence’ award in the ‘Oil Painting’ category and awarded ‘Best in Show’ overall in Red Bubble’s 8th juried invitational Solo Exhibition 2010.

It was also awarded 4th place in the Artavita 2011 annual competition out of 1,200 entries, for which it was was featured in the Important World Artists book.

Signed museum quality ltd edition hand embellished fine art prints of this beautiful original oil painting are available in this highly sought after format directly from myself – the artist. The perfect wall décor to adorn a traditional to contemporary interior.

Each print is individually hand produced entirely by myself on Epson 350 gsm premium satin canvas using my Epson Surecolour giclée professional printers at an extremely high definition 2,880 dpi. They are guaranteed lightfast, all of the intricate fine detail of the original artwork is accurately reproduced and the quality is absolutely superb. A border of approximately 1cm is provided for mounting on board and framing.

The 2 stages of hand embellishment comprises the application of textured impasto style brush strokes on highlighted features and detailed fine brush stroke varnishing throughout to replicate the original artwork. The finished prints are resilient and waterproof hence glazing is not required and the surface may easily be dusted and wiped clean. Admirers can also clearly see and touch the detailed textures for that extra dimension of a ‘touchy-feely’ experience and they may be forgiven for believing it to be an original oil painting.

Only 99 signed and numbered prints of each artwork are available and these really are the ultimate, top of the range, fine art prints when something extra special is required.

Unframed: These prints are supplied unframed for discerning collectors who have a preference to purchase their own bespoke frame to suit their personal taste that complements both the artwork and their home décor.
Framed: As an option, the prints may be mounted on board (smaller sizes) or stretched (larger sizes) and framed in an extremely high quality, textured solid black wood, contemporary frame, for a sophisticated contemporary appearance.
