Mary A. Chase Doll
Contemporary Dance Artist and Poet
Art fills the spaces between the corporeal and the ethereal. I try to capture that space within my body and through my body in movement. Dance to me is a meditation, a prayer, an offering. My work is about life, not the big moments– but the details, the things we all experience in our own way captured through movement. We breathe, we love, we agonize, we cry, we laugh. Making art about being present in these moments is my greatest gift and greatest challenge.
The international community that I’ve been able to meet since moving to Dubai has greatly influenced me and shaped my area of focus. I’ve been working on the intersection between realism and design, and adding elements of mixed media to add richness to my practice.
