About The Artwork

MINE TO ENJOY Oil painting on canvas 120x100 I've been asked a lot why I paint so many female nudes. Today I thought I'd answer. The thing is that I am a female myself and everything I do in my art comes from my perspective. When I'm working with strong feelings I look for tools that would visually get the most accurate description of what's going on inside. So if my feeling is intensely feminine, translating it to a male body wouldn't be as authentic as I like my work to be. For the nude part - My journey with my own body has really sprung in the last year. I've always felt rather awkward and had many insecurities. Now I've been truly exploring what my body is capable of and I've truly learnt to love it like nothing else. My body is mine and here for me to enjoy. This means both sexually and non-sexually and I won't shy away from the conversation, as we're taught to do. My body is what allows me to paint, move, dance and explore the world, so as a manifestation of love towards it, I paint it. And the answer to the "nude" part is actually very simple - because it's beautiful. Yours truly Marita Liivak

Through art I tell stories about my personal experiences as means of sharing my joys and relieving my pain. Even though I believe a painting should stand on its own, sharing stories alongside my work has proven crucial to the connection I have with my audience. The first stage of this act is therapy for myself and the second is comfort for others. The inner turmoil I’ve encountered in my life had first pushed me to start sharing my experiences in 2017 and today it’s become the essence of my work. I’ve found through years of this practice that the need for candid stories about one’s experiences is in high demand. It’s not common to share one’s struggle openly because as humans we are extremely complicated beings. Often it’s not the lack of will holding us back but the lack of understanding. In my practise I spend a lot of time studying psychology and comparing myself and my experiences to what I’ve learned. The aim of this practise is to be in the know of today’s ways of thinking as well as it’s heritage but more importantly to deepen the understanding of myself as a human being. This approach of accepting and bettering myself through knowledge and self-reflection is my way of making the world a better place. I believe my greatest responsibility before the world is to find peace and understanding within myself. Turning to more knowledgeable people on the topic of psychology helps me deepen my vocabulary when I choose to share my stories with others. In the end I think that being such intricate creatures it’s impossible to reach our true depth and often words will fail in describing the human experience. That’s when I pick up the brush to paint a picture that gives meaning to my existence.
