“Ballet is the body rising. Ballet is ceremonial and hieratic. Its disdain for the commonplace material world is the source of its authority and glamour.” —CAMILLE PAGLIA.

Weightless bodies, captivating lines and shapes sculptured en pointe; ballerinas prance elegantly in their cloud-like tutus. Like majestic birds, they elongate their arms caressing the wind and paint a story with their skillful physiques. This series explores the graceful moves of female ballet dancers and portrays their perfected gestures in an abstract, fluid, and poetic way. It illustrates how ballerinas fuse body and mind in the vibrant world that is ballet.
