Many people forget that art isn’t specifically defined as something stationary that we are just meant to look at. ArtPrize has not forgotten this detail and actually includes many time based pieces that depict the performing arts as well. Though Lauren Loria’s piece Dévelopé is only a visual representation of the performing arts, it still captures the beauty and emotion of ballet by freezing the dancers at a specific moment in time.
The goal of her piece is to allow viewers to contemplate dance without the constant change that comes with watching a performance. Since dance is an ephemeral art form, important artistic details are often missed so please don’t miss this opportunity to experience dance frozen in time through Lauren’s photographs!
The competition runs from September 20 – October 8, 2017.
