Building a geometric composition on an essentially representational theme unveils something profoundly modernist in Paola Minekov’s painting. Free-form facets stand in accord with the composition-building diagonals of the figures’ limbs, while the entire work is executed in gradation of violet and blue. Lighter accents found in the dancers’ costume are further expanded in their orange and green skin tone, contrasting the overall darker setting of the work. Force of the canvas comes from the center again, as we await for the curled-up figure to unroll.
