'Untitled' deals with psychological and sociological dilemmas through the intensity and vulnerability of the female body. Elena is greatly interested in the way the human body behaves, and has a great fascination with fat. Her work deals with the way flesh behaves when strained, its folds, peaks and aesthetic of flesh and its significance fascinates her as an artist. Elena not only challenges the restrictive constraints that society has installed on the body, but pushes the body to the extreme where it encompasses a physical space that the frame cannot contain. Some may be disgusted by fat, some may embrace it, but certainly hopes her work provokes a reaction. Elena's intention is to push and pull the emotions of the viewer through these sensual vehicles of repulsion and attraction.
