Painting of a brightly lit street at night

Tabitha Verbuyst, Tillsonburg
Dancing in the Street
Oil on canvas
101.6 x 152.4 x 3.81 cm

Drawn to the disappearing, illuminated, obscured and eerie, Tabitha Verbuyst’s oil works focus on a fleeting moment in everyday, the dreamlike memory of the otherwise past and forgotten. The enigmatic image with dramatic high contrast using vibrant palettes layered over and over again creates a richness and depth. This disassociates the viewer with the location and instead turns focus to the movement, vibrancy, emotion and beauty within that moment. Dancing in the Street places the viewer in an everyday setting, but turns the focus to the lively vibrations of the location, creating emotion and connection with the vivid colour palette.
