Double Trapeze

This is a photo of myself and my partner in the Big Apple Circus. I'm the one hanging by her knees. When I look at these now they have a peculiar resonance with my painting. Often the shapes and linear topography of the rigging coincides with the silhouettes & lines in my pictures.
I thing of the catspiders and their odd outlines, the single figured pictures like Blue and then the circus fantasmagoria of Demon on Canal.
