Dancing Drawings - Lindsay Kemp
Watercolour depicting two stage costumes for Giacomo Puccini’s ‘La Madama Butterfly’. The drawings are completely authentic and watercoloured by the artist and there are handwritten notes.
A white sheet of paper becomes a stage, and the few strokes that spring from his hand become dance.
It is impossible not to be fascinated by the vital energy emanated by Lindsay Kemp’s drawings, in which the sign and the colour are the natural consequence of his moving on the scene, free and without any inhibition. Lindsay’s characters, always the same but each time different, iridescent like diamonds, enclose in them the whole artist’s world, eros and magic, and tell us about his most intimate and secret ‘self’, that Lindsay gives to the audience as a gift.
Dancing Drawings is a collection of works by the eclectic and kaleidoscopic choreographer, actor, dancer, mime and painter, an artist who indelibly marked the second half of the 20th century. His performances influenced modern dance, and his theatre company had David Bowie as a pupil, of whom Kemp was the inspiring muse and guide.
Galileum Autografi now offers a selection of works by Lindsay Kemp, taken from the series most dear to the artist, the series Spain, Japan, Sailors, Circus and Dracula, as well as very rare and exclusive sketches for the making of the costumes of important plays staged by Lindsay Kemp.
Each work comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist.
