“Little Obsession.” shows the image of the artist in stereoscopic visions of Escher. The Narcissus complex is transformed into a question about the continuous transformations of one’s own body. The flesh comes out of her figure, as the critic Deleuze would say, but unlike Francis Bacon, it is no longer contained by the pictorial surface, transposed out of itself and reflected in the mirror. Daniela and her double appear, a portrait reflected in a surface that no longer shows but rather reflect moods reverberation and underground anxieties that are difficult to express. Anatomical details show imperceptible transformations of one’s appearance, moments of acceptance but also of derision of one’s own body in the eternal movement of slipping and out of the Self from the perception that one has of one’s own image.
