This work belongs to a series of 17 paintings dedicated to dance. The title refers to the position of the dancer's arms, which form a beautiful line that diagonally crosses the black background of the painting. At the end of each hand there is a square that seems to have been detached from the wrist, while on the floor there is another square that we can guess has been torn from the ballerina's body.

The work is done in a mixed technique on canvas and combines photography, digital art and acrylic painting (glossy lacquer glazes and raised squares that look like glass inlays on the surface of the canvas); it is a unique piece, it is signed with a monogram both in front (at the ballerina's ankle) and behind, and it is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. The painting is framed in an American black box.

For about ten years now, I have been creating paintographies. As its name suggests, a paintography is a mixture of painting and photography.

From photography, I keep the initial shot, an essential and unavoidable basis for the work to come. I also retain, despite all the successive manipulations carried out afterwards on the computer, the precision, finesse and plastic quality that certainly distinguish it from painting other than hyper-realistic. However, a paintography is not a photograph, it is a plastic construction that raises doubts in the eyes, that raises the question of the nature of the image that is offered to the eyes of the spectators. What part of the work was captured by the objective, what part recreated by the software work, what part brought by the acrylic glazes?

Layers, layers, stacks: despite its extreme readability, a paintography is a complex construction, based on a succession of screens. The fabric or skin never appears naked, they are always covered by a material that is as much a screen as it is a body with them. This matter is itself obscured by squares that seem either to detach from it or to deepen within it; by evoking the pixels at the base of any digital image, these squares remind us that this matter is a decoy, that it is virtual. And yet, in the works in mixed technique, it is precisely these squares that appear in relief on the surface of the canvas, in a strange transparent materiality...
