INTERMEZZO... a light dramatic musical or other performance inserted between the acts of a play. Inspired by KABUKI a form of traditional Japanese drama as my setting, I've tried to capture on canvas Strength through the male dancer, and Grace through the female adding Balance through movement. KABUKI Ka meaning song, Bu meaning dance, and Ki meaning art. The headdress is composed of black, lava, pearl mica chip, and crushed glass. The Obiage... scarf- like piece , sandstone, glassbead, and pearl mica chip.
