    Drawings for Purchase by Carol Prud’homme Davis

    Artist Statement:
    I have created art my entire life, especially art inspired by dance. I danced professionally, had a dance company and then a production company which included arts education so that my dancers were equipped with the tools they needed to choreograph their own stories.

    In 2009, I found myself laid off, between jobs. I turned to my husband and said,” I want to finally pursue my wildest dream and be a working artist.” He said “Go for it!” and suggested that I go out in the street and draw what I see. When I got pretty good at that, I wanted to go out and draw dance movements at studios and theatres.

    I started to call studios and dance companies asking to come and draw their classes and rehearsals. Sandra Cameron, 3-time Ballroom Champion, allowed me to come and draw any class I wished at her dance center. I had never learned Ballroom Dance, so I found I had to learn the techniques by watching as I drew: Tango, Waltz, Fox Trot and my favorite Swing.

    Later on I was invited to the Peridance Center. Igal Perry, Artistic Director and Owner, had been a ballet teacher of mine when I was dancing professionally, so I felt comfortable going to his dance center and asking to draw. I became a resident visual artist at the Center and was allowed to draw any class style.

    In 2020, during the global pandemic, I drew zoom classes and choreography from all over the world. To date I have drawn and archived about 100 dance teachers, choreographers, and dancers from a variety of dance forms.

    Now I am back home, at Peridance.

She looks forward to having her art image on the Anna Sokolow “Slaughter of the Innocents” album cover which will be performed live at the Smithsonian along with her artwork inspired by rare photos of Anna Sokolow performing “Slaughter of the Innocents”. Carol’s image, “Reflection and Reaction” was featured in the awarding winning video, “Pause”. Carol’s artwork is the book cover on “A Dancer Writes Haiku” by Marie Paquet-Nesson.
