Painting – Artist Addé – Exhausted Painted Body.


I n Africa, ritual dances often imply all over body paintings, which are carefully applied, and transform the dancers to carry them beyond, into magical spirits. Then, after hours of transe and intense efforts, the paintings get worn out, and there, at that moment, reach their highest sense.
This painting by Addé is connecting to that very special time.

      This touches me strongly, especially as it is a “difficult” painting, thank you very much !
