Searching For The Light

Searching For The Light

DEMI. Searching For The Light, 2010.

"Searching For The Light" is a painting of girls fighting to find the light, which emanates from a lamp resembling an eye. The light is symbolic of several words, like Truth, Answers, etc.

Their elaborated and heavy textured dresses and multiple layers of transparencies, are like an "armature" to protect them. Everything is painted and done in a poetic way, always preserving the mysteries that it all implies. Balletic movement brings the theme of the search to a more explicit statement, where the dancer in red in the foreground looks up at the black light in the center as the positive defiance of the negative.
