About "Perfectly Lonely"
‘Women in Motion’ is a celebration of the strength, beauty and sensuality of women. The natural
beauty of a woman’s body and physique forms another subtle undertone of each of the paintings in
this collection. All the paintings forming part of ‘Women in Motion’, were inspired by a calendar
containing pictures of dancers in motion, which was compiled by Renee Watson (of Renee Watson
Pilates studios), and which immediately instilled feelings of happiness and delight in Ilze when she
first laid eyes on them.
The collection comprises of three distinct categories, with each category uniquely capturing
moments of serenity. The categories are:
Black and white nudes – these paintings reflect mystery and sensuality;
Figures immersed in water – these works embody pure beauty and calmness;
Dancers in motion on white background – each of these images captures raw energy and
The combination of the themes portrayed in all three of the abovementioned categories brings
together the key elements of being a woman and deserves to be celebrated!
