The painting depicts a strong body of ballerina in movement and one foot from another figure appears on the left side of canvas. The body is painted in black and grey on white background
This painting represents anatomy of fouette movement. A fouette is a turn in ballet which begins with the performer standing on one flat foot in plie. The working leg is extended and whipped around to the side and then bent and pulled until the foot touches the supporting knee. These movements create the angular momentum needed for one turn, which is executed by rotating in place on the supporting foot.
“I am trying to catch the spirit in movement through the human body and to show it on a flat surface. To freeze-frame a small glimpse of movement. I was particularly interested in the architecture of classical dance choreography. Through the study of the capacity of human body movement and the history of movement, the history of the concept of the beauty of movement and how the perception of beauty is transforming through time, I started to see the connection between body and nature. The elements of nature appear in my latest paintings. Now I am trying to connect the flow of the human body with a semiotic shape of nature. The many layers of body details depict the anatomy of concrete movement by the performer. The different layers represent the feeling of motion and uncertainty. The contrast between uncertainty and preciseness makes the viewer let their imagination complete the movement: therefore to have full flow and artwork I need a viewer to complete the process.”
