Photographer Phil Solomonson, also known as Philamonjaro, and abstract painter Sandi Goodwin invite art lovers to experience the dynamic synergy of visual storytelling and kinetic expression in their collaborative exhibition, “Ephemeral Spirit of Dance.” The exhibition will be held at Bloom Gallery, Valencia from April 12th to 26th, 2024. Phil Solomonson is renowned for his evocative music photography, brings a unique perspective to the world of visual arts, capturing the essence of motion and emotion in his stunning compositions. His lens captures the vibrancy of dance, exploring the interplay between light, shadow, and movement with unparalleled finesse.

Sandi Goodwin is an abstract painter with a penchant for translating the language of dance onto canvas, infuses her work with the fluidity and rhythm of movement. Drawing inspiration from the graceful motions of dancers, she creates vibrant compositions that blur the lines between form and abstraction, inviting viewers into a world of colour and movement.

In this exhibition, Solomonson and Goodwin come together to explore the interconnectedness of their respective mediums, offering viewers a multisensory experience that transcends traditional boundaries. Through a carefully curated selection of photographs and paintings, they invite audiences to journey through the fluidity of movement, from the graceful arabesques of ballet to the dynamic energy of urban life.

“We are thrilled to present this exhibition as a celebration of the beauty and vitality of movement in all its forms,” says Phil Solomonson. “Through our collaboration, we hope to inspire viewers to see the world with fresh eyes and to appreciate the poetry of motion in everyday life.”

Sandi Goodwin adds, “Dance has always been a source of inspiration for my work, and I am excited to explore its visual language in collaboration with Phil. Together, we aim to create an immersive experience that invites viewers to connect with the power and beauty of movement on a visceral level.”

Bloom Gallery, though still a newcomer to Valencia’s art scene, has an ethos on the importance of collaboration, especially across art genres. Directors Bob and Elizabeth Khoury encouraged the development of this exhibition from its inception as a random idea in a conversation with the two artists last year.

The exhibition will be open to the public from April 12th to 26th at ‘Bloom Gallery.’ The opening, on the 12th, will include a dance performance  Join then on April 12 19:00h for their exhibit opening of ‘The Ephemeral Spirit of Dance.’ Sandi Goodwin and Phillip Solomonson (aka Philamonjaro) are exhibiting dance photographs paired with abstract interpretations on canvas. The opening will include a dance performance with Cameron Hall and Co.
