The dancer exudes an impassioned expression as she dips her back in poise. The richness of her gesture is articulated on the impeccable folds of her dress, which lavishly wraps her body into a floating, shapeless form. Swift, fine lines in white move throughout her clothing, as if imitating the woman’s graceful movement. Gradations in brown, maroon, and orange permeate both the background and the woman - as if the dancer is on a fiery trance. National Artist BenCab masterfully employs warm, vibrant colors; bold, intricate lines; and sophisticated movement to capture a fleeting moment of energy and elegance.
