Doyle on Fire


 

Graphic and colorful enhancement of an elegant circus performer portrait from the turn of the last century. Part of the personal art series, Scenes from the Midway, a show at Old Soul Co. in Sacramento. Embroidered photograph and paper in shadow box.

From the inscription: 

The history of juggling dates to almost 2,000 BC. Ancient Egyptian crypt wall paintings depicted female jugglers along side other acrobats and dancers. This culture's art is said to also hold the origins of juggling with fire.
