Work Overview

La Ballerina Del Diavolo (The Devil's Ballerina) is about an imaginary, but somehow also realistic, scenario of the tensions that we as humans experience between the 'good' and 'bad' components of our beings. This 'badness' is represented in my work by a ballerina, a visual embodiment of inner psychosis.
It is in human nature to want to be 'the best', to want to 'lead', to want to be 'the winner'. Sometimes it feels like our life is in constant competition, perhaps real, or perhaps imagined. I wonder, is the ballerina a hypochondriac, or is she just documenting what she witnesses in our society?
