All the King's Horses by Lydia Janssen
American artist, Lydia Janssen will make her Singapore debut with her latest body of work at REDSEA Gallery.
As a former professional dancer who suffered several injuries which left her unable to dance, Singapore-based, American artist Lydia Janssen illustrates the raw and beautiful chaos of putting herself back together again, through the fluid brushtrokes on her canvas. Illustrating her emotional and physical journey from dancer to painter, her works are an autobiography of her relationship with her body in moving images, that take on a life of their own, which is at once powerful and moving.
The viewer is enticed to examine further ideas which may disturb, but also delight, as they find their own meaning in Janssen’s mad dance of personal discovery.
