Another Italian Futurist captures movement on canvas with a synergy of athleticism and art. Roughly 6′ by 6′, it is so worth a trip to MoMA to see in person if you have the opportunity. If not, here it is!

Related Thoughts From The Kinespirit Studio:
DYNAMIC STABILITY- ability to align pieces of the whole body, while maintaining and facilitating movement. Muscles that allow this are not the surface muscles, but the deep ones. The same thing can be said for the mind and soul…we tend to train from the outside in. But we could be so much more if our intentions and actions came from deep inside out!

    When I went to MoMA this year I must have walked right by this beauty. ^+*

      I know, I’ve done the same thing several times. It is in a grouping I wouldn’t normally pay so much attention to. Luckily I was taking a humanities class and needed something new to write a paper about. Hopefully you can go back and check it out, or maybe look for works by Futurists in other art museums sometime. Their style kind of reminds me of an early form of graphic design. Thanks for the comments!
