About the Piece

In this cheery piece a Sufi dancer spins in pink, connecting with a higher state of consciousness. Elsner had seen and been enthralled by Sufi dancers in London and Turkey. The exuberant act combined with the clear restraint to the spot no doubt drew his interest. The title quotation draws our attention perhaps to the movement of the dancer and the stillness of art object or the stillness of the drawn moving dancer and the atomic movement inherent in all stationary objects.
