  • In the Ballerina series, I am exploring the relationship between dance as a spiritual practice and dance as a sexually charged act. I am juxtaposing the ethereal with the ephemeral, in other words, I strive to show the Ballet dancer as half-God half-animal. I want the viewer to see how while the dancer appears to have a transcendent experience, the dancer is also concealing sexual desire. This sexual desire is conveyed through the unstable form, the transparent stillness, and the plasticity of the dancing body.
