Artist's description:

"Freedom & beauty are mortal enemies.
Beauty snares both the admirer and the admired."
(Dominic Rouse, 2013)

From the series 'Haunted by a Painter's Ghost'.
As with much of Rouse's work this image is a complex montage of disparate elements gleaned from various locations around the world. The young ballerina is actually a seamless blend of four different models and the location is a disused school in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, which was used as an interrogation facility by the khmer Rouge in the 1970's and is now a museum to the Cambodian genocide. The flying vulture was photographed at a bird sanctuary in the UK.

The edition is limited to 250 prints each supplied with a Certificate of Print Authenticity. Prints are signed on the back in black ink with a numbered gallery stamp. The title and copyright details are printed under the image.

This print ships rolled in a large 'crush-proof' PVC tube.

"Dominic Rouse's art goes further than a prosaic depiction of our world. It undermines our reason and logic and forces us to challenge what we have claimed as 'beauty' . And beyond the subtle textures of his exquisite prints lies that art; dark in tone and rich in the symbols of the unexpected - ornate silver tableaux of undeclared meaning." (David Genovesi - Rome, Italy)
