This is my current self-portrait project, created as a mixture of photography, geo-art, performance and digital art. I find unique places – famous or completely unknown, and I integrate compositions made from different positions of my naked body into landscapes. I interact with nature, synchronize with the lines and geometry of places.
For me, this is also a performance, which usually lasts about 20-30 minutes. Sometimes random people watch, sometimes it’s my personal interaction with nature.
This is my way of cultivating a sense of possibility and even the need for harmony between people and nature. We are just patterns on the skin of the planet, and we should be beautiful patterns.
On the other hand, this is my own anti-ageism message to myself and other 40+ women.
I have a lot of doubts about starting my career as an artist after 40 years (I used to be mainly a commercial photographer before). Am I too late? Should I show my body in this context? Do I have the courage and strength to do this? Am I beautiful enough? And to all these questions, I say to myself – Yes.
Technically, I use digital processing to create these works, combining several images taken from the same point into one. But they are all real phases of my body during this long movement. And you can see this result of a 20-minute action instantly.
