"The dancer and his cranes" is a continuity of the black and gold series Oscar Lett has been developing over 7 years which often highlights birds and Man.
Here, Lett uses the symbols that are dear to him - the black/white/gold trio of colours - but also the weeping willow that is recurring in his work. The birds synonymous with liberty are flying with the dancer, who finds freedom and relief when he performs. The willow tree means to add some melancholy but beauty to the scene.
Commissioned in celebration of Anise Gallery’s 10 Year Anniversary, and printed in collaboration with Plain.tiff Press.
