about this painting:
The dance of passion
If you ask anyone what the most passionate dance is, they will almost certainly answer: tango. Crisp rhythm, emotional moves, a charge of electricity between the partners… Every pace, every wave of a hand, every turn of the head is filled with tension and fire. Originated in the poor districts of Buenos Aires, tango quickly spread to the upper classes of society through street and theatre performances and is now known as one of the most popular dances in the world.
Since its appearance, tango has evolved into a number of varieties, each characterized by its own peculiar dancing style:
- Argentine tango has a strong element of improvisation and encourages a more natural, emotionally saturated dance.
- Ballroom tango is a classic part of the internationally accepted program based on stricter canons and predetermined moves.
- Finnish tango is an even more conservative variety danced in the Northern Europe distinguished by an unusually low position, close upper body contact and wide steps.
- Tango Nuevo represents contemporary art of dance and introduces a number of fusion elements borrowed from jazz and techno styles.
But regardless of the style you prefer, tango requires enormous concentration, a good ear for rhythm and a lot of expression. Just like any other type of art, dancing balances between technique and emotion. And this eye-striking palette knife painting by one of the most famous contemporary artists, Leonid Afremov, proves it once again.
In the heat of tango
Painting is a static kind of art. It always offers us just a scene, a moment captured out of context. But we can easily imagine the entire story encrypted in strokes of paint. This one could have taken place everywhere, from a dancing competition to a retro party. But the casual look of the heroes and the late-night atmosphere of the picture suggest the scene unfolds at some recreation spot. We can already see it, the door opens and new visitors join the noisy crowd enjoying wine and music. They don’t know yet that the arrival of this pair will turn a usual evening at a local restaurant into a thrilling dancing show.
Whether they were professional dancers, slightly awash or madly in love (most likely a bit of all), they immediately grabbed everyone’s attention and. Inspired by their passionate moves and sparkling eyes, half-sleeping musicians started playing with new strength. The melodious voice of the violin, the romantically illuminated restaurant hall and the charm of this beautiful night surround them with a cloud of blue mist, tantalizing and intoxicating. Their breath becomes irregular, their hearts beat faster, their hands squeeze each other tighter. They soar over the dance floor like two sea waves racing to the shore, like two candle lights flickering in a dark room, like two shadows that emerged on your wall for a moment and disappeared out of sight before you could realize it. And until the last sound of music, until the last word of love, until the last step of this blue tango, the night is theirs.
