At first glance a dance painting set on the Maine Coast, on closer inspection the girl sitting alone behind the dancing couples adds a wistful, hopeful air to the scene. A fog over the ocean beyond also contrasts with the dynamic motion of dancing couples.
Christopher Cart’s brushwork emphasizes the physicality of the the dancers, and his colors are lush yet soft, making us want to touch the women’s dress and hair, and the soft green dune grasses.
