This is a portrait of a sensitive and fragile Colombian girl living a long way from home. She is determined and focused, planning for her future, but wishing to be loved in an environment that is harsh and unfeeling. Her ephemeral youth and perfection will vanish with transience of life. Will her dreams and desires be fulfilled in the passing of time?
I have supported my painting with two video experimentations, which bring the character to life.

Ariel’s fantastic ballet career is over. She is no longer able to reach the gates of heaven during her never-ending pirouettes and glamorous jumps. Her body is now deformed and she feels constant pain. Her twisted joints are permanently inflamed and swollen. Her potential to perform and inspire is forever gone. Underneath her fake pose and put on facade, she is very down to Earth. She has never enjoyed dancing. It was her parents dream, which destroyed her future, health and beautiful body… Once upon a time, her mother had one distinct ambition in life – she wanted to become a famous ballet dancer.
My artwork is now exhibited at a brand new Interactive Online Exhibition! The show is titled ‘In the History’ and organised by the prestigious The Artist Lounge. 70 artworks were selected for the display and 20 finalists will be announced at the end of July.
In the History Online Interactive Exhibition
“In the History” Art Competition called for artists worldwide, from April to May 2021, to share their artworks inspired by history or by historic characters.
“Through history we can learn how past societies, systems and ideologies were built, how they changed, and how their influence moulded humanity to create what we are now. History is more than old tales and stories written down in books. History is part of everything, and our today will one day be history.”
The Artist Lounge is proud to announce the semi-finalists of our “In the History” Art Competition, now part of our Online Exhibition below. Our talented artists come from all around the world and the collection of their artworks is a piece of art on itself. We welcome you all to this fantastic journey:
