Tango Vignettes

How it all started:

In the Spring of 2005
something happened 
in my life, and every 
time I returned home 
from a milonga, I would 
paint a little vignette of 
my experience of that 
night. Or a fantasia.

 

 

 

Gancho

As I was going over the 
paper, I had the feeling 
that I was touching 
again that majestic back 
or pressing close to my 
body the slender soul of 
what was a warm body 
attached to mine, 
in dance and music, 
only minutes ago. 
With painting, the fading 
sensation was staying 
with me a little longer, 
in a realm between reality 
and inspiration.

The tangos from my big 
record collection were 
reverberating in my ears 
feelings that I could poorly 
describe in colors and 
never in words. 
The music and the sound 
of the pastel sticks on 
paper were accompanying 
my loneliness and 
occasional despair. 
Over time these drawings 
became a small pile …

When I was invited by 
the LA ART FEST to 
show my work, I debated 
whether I should share 
with the public these 
personal sketches. 
The public won. 

In sharing my experience 
with others I hope that 
they themselves receive 
an invitation by Tango, 
discover their own, as 
spectators or participants, 
and make it part of their lives, 
like tango has made me 
one of its own.
