Trance Dance

This painting is about the act of realizing difficult decisions. The analogy is to that of a traditional African trance dance, where individuals dance around a fire, endlessly, ultimately entering into trances. In the dream world state one theoretically is able to realize solutions and ‘see’ the way forward. Ultimately, then coming out of the dream state back to reality. The individuals in the painting start out of focus on the left, dreaming, finally coming into focus on the right, in the new reality. Similarly, the third individual is aged, as difficult decisions can do to one, but on achieving the hard decision, one has a new lease on life, and hence the gap, between the three individuals and the new youthful individual on the right of the canvas.
