Art Description

Painting: Oil and Leather on Other.

SKIN STORIES
My paintings stem from the close, intimate observation of human skin, that place where personal history is printed and narrated in each spot, each crease, and each wrinkle. We are what is visible in our skin; that makes us readable and therefore vulnerable. My painting wants to explore that vulnerability, that risk we encounter when under the gaze of others. It also wants to create untold stories, to capture past experiences and future hopes or longings in the sheer physicality of the present moment. That´s why I use animal skin as my canvas. I use personal short texts written in Braille, and sign language for the deft to build the character out of the skin, to merge together as one and tell one whole story.
