I painted this piece to visually shift the paradigm of who could be featured in a ballet painting. Most paintings that are well known are of Eurocentric dancers. Very few paintings feature woman of color as this art form seems to still be a predominantly Eurocentric dance. I wanted to paint my ballerina in all her elegance as a woman of color-- Confidant, powerful and unique.
