About

Speaking to its title, There is Only the Dance is an uplifting, abstract oil painting by Yolanda Sánchez that evokes joy and romance through color and paint strokes. Hues of fuschia, magenta, pale pink, and green dance across the canvas, while the surrounding negative space allows the vibrant palette and gestural composition to breathe. At 70 x 96 inches, this large, three-panel painting demonstrates Sánchez's excellent use of space, brushwork, and color, while the abstract brushstrokes seem to evoke flora and movement.

Sánchez's paintings are a search for re-enchantment, for a way to reach below the surface of things, to find that point of connection with life. The artist wants to engage the viewer in a sensory experience, one that is un-camera-like, un-computer-like. Her goal is to nudge the viewer into a deeper experience of the present, where the “circumference of self” is dissolved - to provide a moment of contemplation without literally telling a story.

Yolanda Sánchez was born in Havana, Cuba and emigrated to the United States in 1960. She has a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. After teaching for many years, she returned to her first passion, art. She was awarded an MFA and a BFA from Yale University in painting.
