Women and Men Abstract
A feminine torso wearing a dress. The statue conveys an air of freshness and joy of life. Nevertheless, it has a touch of surrealism, since the dancer’s breasts and her dress appear as one, and her exterior body contour is unstitched by a lace which is a part of the outfit. In addition, there is an evident influence of Dega’s statues of dancers integrated with Ilana’s personal style.
The statue creates a feel of perfection: old and new, classic combined with avant-garde and surrealism, and femininity mixed with childishness. All of these elements are merged into a single organic art creation in which they complete and balance each other.
* * The base of the sculpture is different than the one in the picture, it is flat and similar in its nature to the base of “Female Conflict ” and therefore the discount on the sculpture is larger.
