Transforming the Human Form: the captivating story behind body paintings
The six body paintings showcase the portrayal of a woman’s silhouette, each adorned with vibrant colors. I have chosen to simplify both the figure and the interior surrounding her, leaving us in suspense about her whereabouts. However, it is evident that each woman is confined within a room. The geometric elements – horizontal lines, vertical lines, and right angles – suggest that these rooms are part of an architectural structure, perhaps a house or a flat. These are the very interiors we often find ourselves in, spending a significant portion of our lives within their confines.
These rooms serve as both a sanctuary and a limitation for the woman depicted in the paintings. She is intricately woven into the fabric of these spaces, accepting the dual nature of the room – a place of refuge and a place of restriction. It is within these rooms that her life unfolds, where she experiences a range of emotions and moods. Each of these body paintings captures a different facet of her being, resulting in a collection of mixed media artworks on paper that form a vibrant and decorative mosaic.
This mosaic can be arranged either vertically or horizontally, allowing the viewer to accompany the woman on her emotional journey. Furthermore, the viewer has the opportunity to contribute their own elements to this mosaic, drawing from their own emotional interior. In doing so, they become an active participant in the artwork, adding their own unique perspective to the narrative.
Through these six square rooms, I invite the viewer to explore the complexities of human emotions and the interplay between our internal and external environments through painted bodies . It is a series that encourages us to reflect on the spaces we inhabit and the impact they have on our lives.
