Jason Hill is an artist and educator currently living in Portland, Oregon. He took this photo in winter 2019, during a day in Eugene with the off-Broadway cast of The Lion King. “I am most amazed by the discipline, momentum, and grace of dancers,” he says. “These images are a testament to the power and beauty that these artists possess.” You can see his body of work, titled In My Skin, at the AUX/MUTE Gallery presented by The Numberz FM and the Portland Art Museum through February 27.
Let’s explore how our words can convey the same energy of movement and grace that Hill’s image does. We have two prompts to help you get started. As always, you can choose one, both, or write whatever else comes to mind. Set a timer for 12 minutes and just keep your pen or pencil moving.
