Girl with Laika

DEMI. Girl with Laika, 2010.

"Girl with Laika" is a painting describing a completely nude girl accompanied by a dog called Laika. Far beyond on the sky you see the planet Earth, suggesting that the girl and the dog are on a different planet. It might be the moon or some other planet. The painting makes reference to an event that happened in November 3, 1957, where a dog named Laika was sent in orbit on Sputnick II. Here, the artist uses the event to indicate her desire of "stopping the world and get out."
