Sublime Fuller

Il post di oggi é dedicato ad una grande artista del ´900. Marie Louise Fuller meglio conosciuta come Loie Fuller, danzatrice e coreografa statunitense. Avvolta da tanti strati di seta, da farfalle dipinte sugli abiti e fiori riusciva a creare, attraverso il movimento del suo corpo, una sorta di quadro nello spazio. Non solo danza ma uno spettacolo completo. Grazie alle sue conoscenze di illuminotecnica e di improvvisazione inizió ad esibirsi nei grandi palchi dei teatri d´Europa e Stati Uniti, fu anche di grande ispirazione per molti artisti dell´epoca, come Toulouse Lautrec. Perfezionó sempre di piú la sua arte fino al suggestivo spettacolo “Le Feu” (Il Fuoco) dove appare al pubblico avvolta nell´oscuritá, dipinta con colori fluoroscenti ed illuminata dal basso attraverso lastre di vetro trasparenti. Ho voluto fare questa premessa perché da quando ho conosciuto la storia di questa straordinaria artista l´ho subito adorata, e quando vedo abiti lunghi, fluttuanti e colorati penso a lei. Quest´estate vedremo tanti abiti cosí. J´adore !

El post de hoy está dedicado a un gran artista del '900. Marie Louise Fuller mejor conocida como Loie Fuller, bailarina y coreógrafa americana. Envuelta en muchas capas de seda, flores y mariposas pintadas en la ropa creaba, a través del movimiento de su cuerpo, una especie de cuadro en el espacio. No sólo baile, sino un espectáculo completo. Gracias a su conocimiento de la iluminación y la improvisación, que comenzó a actuar en grandes escenarios de los teatros de Europa y los Estados Unidos, también fue una gran inspiración para muchos artistas de la época, como Toulouse Lautrec. Perfeccionó su arte siempre más hasta a impresionar el público con el espectáculo llamado "Le Feu" (el fuego) en donde ella aparecía envuelta en la oscuridad, pintada con colores  fluoroscentes e iluminada desde abajo a través de placas de vidrio transparente. Yo quería hacer esta premisa, porque desde que supe la historia de esta extraordinaria artista la he rapidamente  adorado, y cuando veo vestidos largos y sueltos y coloridos  pienso en ella. Este verano vamos a ver tantos vestidos así. J'adore!

Today´s post is dedicated to a great artist of '900. Marie Louise Fuller better known as Loie Fuller, American dancer and choreographer. Wrapped in many layers of silk, flowers and butterflies painted on clothes could create, through the movement of his body, a sort of framework in space. Not only dance, but a complete show. Thanks to his knowledge of lighting and improvisation, he began performing in big stages of the theaters of Europe and the United States, was also a great inspiration for many artists of the era, like Toulouse Lautrec. She  perfected her art always more and impressed the audience with show the show "Le Feu" (The Fire) where she  appears to the public in darkness, painted with fluoroscenti and illuminated from below through transparent glass plates. I wanted to do this premise because since I knew the story of this extraordinary artist I once adored, and when I see long dresses, flowing and colorful I think of her. This summer we will see so many dresses like that. J'adore!
