Tango is a process of listening to, waiting for, understanding, and loving your partner; which teaches you how to make a beautiful relationship in your day-to-day life. When I was preparing this painting series about Tango, I wanted to feel the emotions and engage them as I created the images. I painted them with my feet while dancing tango on the canvases. I chose songs, listened to them over a hundred times in order to engage in the music and choose colors for the paintings. I then painted by myself or with my dance partner. Colors moved across the canvas by means of my feet and emotions.
