The Ballerina Geisha was born out of our fascination with classical dancers. The grace, the elegance, the beauty of form, the choreography, and the accompanying music, have been captivating the hearts and minds of artists throughout ages. Naturally, there is a direct reference to Edgar Degas.
The painting is an epitome of RON MILLER aesthetic, symbolism, and language. Since 2016, we have been focusing on creating original 2D & 3D works inspired by urban and conceptual art, with references to pop art and culture. The Geisha plays a major role in most of our works, representing the ever-changing dynamic nature of contemporary notions of identity. The motto ‘FUCK FAME’ is used with irony and a hint of provocation, pointing out the paradoxical nature of the concepts behind fame, popularity, and influence in the era of neo-liberalism, commodification and digitalization of art and culture, and the never-ending trend-setting activities on social media.
