About The Artwork

My work is inspired by the eternal nature of reality. This piece is part of a larger series, inspired by the concept, "we are the earth, born wild.” Sub Specie Aeternitatis (from the perspective of the eternal) is the overarching theme of the series. I took the image of myself lying down in the salt fields near Wilbur hot springs in northern California a few years ago. Then, I printed the image on a rolled canvas and adhered it to a wooden panel / canvas. Next, I placed bones, skulls, a snake skin, crystals, and rocks that I have found throughout my lifetime over the image. I added some sand and metallic paint, then coated the entire piece with about two gallons of resin to seal everything in place for hundreds if not thousands of years to come. I hope that the viewer will feel a sense of peaceful empowerment when looking at this work. My intention is to capture and reveal eternal visuals and concepts; the omnipresent connection between humans and nature. I choose these subjects (human / nature) for this piece and for all of my works, as it has been informed by my wild upbringing and native visions of our world. I'm looking forward to and also enjoying the revolution, awaiting the day where so many of us return to the land.

Elsa Marie Keefe is an artist based in New York City. Her work is primarily focused around the human body and nature. Through both photography and mixed media, she transmits a message of transcendence and universal beauty. “All bodies and all things of nature are beautiful. Humans are animals are sentient beings. We are the earth.” Elsa takes nude photographs of herself and others in nature, in places void of manmade objects. She also collects trees, rocks, bones and other objects from the land and sea that she places on canvas with resin. The intention behind the art is to remind us that we are all one, interconnected, and a part of mother earth. Performance art is another medium that she is utilizes as of late, promoting public nudity, hoping that we may all become more comfortable with the human body. Holistic wellness, spirituality, and healing are the backbone for her lifestyle and central components to her process and vision. - @justnakednyc * Please email for direct sales, commissions, pricing, & general inquiries:
