Ellen is an artist who is familiar with the Alexander Technique. She held a solo exhibition locally, which was well worth going to see. I’ll let the painting speak for itself but will add that her work is even better in reality. It was an exciting and vibrant exhibition.
Art exhibitions are a time when many people end up with back ache, because they are standing for long periods without being aware of the way they are using their bodies. Looking up above eye level to see a painting, without awareness, can contribute to the problem if we contract our neck and the muscles in our lower back. This can create problems such as a hollow back, putting pressure onto the lumbar vertebrae and discs, which causes discomfort and even back pain.
