The Verb I am
Following Isadora Duncan´s approach towards integrating dance with other types of learning, Anna Dart undertook contemporary dance studies in 2018. Anna says, "I challenged myself pursuing my old dream in order to create a healthier environment within my emotional and physical vessel. It had an impact to the material world: my paintings became bigger, there is gravity, intricate gestures, complex and simple ones, there is strength, movement and stillness. I have always had a nomad spirit. Dance is such a fascinating country to travel to. And it is almost impossible to make the map of it, transcribe the choreography. I made a try to paint it".
‘The Verb I am’ acrylic paintings is a celebration of femininity, flows of consciosness, movement, and beauty. The titles of each painting refer to the basic movements in dance. ‘The Verb I am’ takes you into depths of imagination and Gaudí´s arquitecture, and fills the world the warmth of the Mediterranean sea.
The series was first showcased in eco-friendly boutique Friday´s Project in Barcelona.
In August 2022 Anna Dart refered to the series to make her first fashion digital fabrics and used “Turn” painting for the collaboration with the digital fashion house The Fabricant and the female-focused community The World of Women.
