“You don’t have to know about ballet to enjoy it…”

“…all you have to do is look at it.” – Edwin Denby

This is a porcelain sculpture created from a cast of a ballet dancer’s arms by artist Seo Min Jeong. It’s been painted with Japanese Yakuza-style tattoos (linked to organised crime gangs) to highlight the contrast of 2 very different cultures. The painted tattoos are under the porcelain glaze to mirror real tattoos under the skin.

You can see more of the artist’s work on her website.
