Peruvian artist Cecilia Paredes’ latest work reminds of the Invisible Man project by Liu Bolin or even the Twentysevennames lookbook. The artist experiments with her own body by painting these floral wallpaper designs on herself and blending with the background. The result is pretty effective and in some of them you can barely see her.
“The illusion of ‘disappearing’ into the landscape that surrounds her, is in reality a blending, she is now ‘part of the landscape’ in her quest of belonging,” Paredes explains. “The theme behind all is re-location after displacement and migration and how one has to adjust in order to belong. Tough it is, but it has to be done, without forgetting our origin.”
