"The dance floor is a metaphor for collective experience, euphoria, and sentimentality; it is also a place of tension and trauma. The dance floor is a place of colour and intensity, it's a place to listen, just as much as it is a place to make noise. I think of the dance floor as a placeholder of what has gone by and there is a sentimentality to this. The dance floor is a place of township and it’s a mid-land. The dance floor is a place of significance and it is a place of existence.
My intent as an image maker is to paint through words. I am fascinated by the notion that narrative, truth and fiction can lend themselves to one another in a way that can offer up genuine questions. Words can in fact lie but feeling is universal in its potency." - Ed Burkes, 2021
