Ballerina Come Alive

Jose Romussi is a Chilean artist who creates silk prints and collages that captivate me more than a grand pirouette. As a former professional ballet dancer, the pirouette is a lifeblood image, representing passion, true form and freedom. Using a needle and thread, Romussi transforms vintage photos into palpable beauty. He works over the photographed image to create a new piece, bringing life back to the ballerina.
