A Tango with Her

Created in Procreate on iPad using digital brushes and layered photos of watercolor stains on paper. The two women are married and sharing a tango. I wanted to capture a powerful emotion. In a time when we are social distancing and wearing masks I find this imagery to be especially necessary. To observe faces intimately and witness the embrace.

About the artist

Nicole Roberts

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Art is a gift that many of us never allow ourselves to enjoy. It is a radical form of self love, a therapy, a spiritual practice, activism, a form of magic...and it won't stop whispering in my ear.
