The appearance of humans, culture and nature has been a theme in art for thousands of years. Some may suggest that these themes have been in communication with art for some time. A theme isdurable as it’s frequent, and hard to come up with a new one.
This is where the works of Gesine Marwedel come into play. She blends the themes of human appearance, nature, and animals all into one, and centers them around the human body itself. She creates these fantastic body paintings that resemble anything from an animal to an abstraction, and does so with elegance and mastery that’s hardly ever matched. She blends the images with the human body so well, that it’s sometimes hard to even see the “canvas.”
She shared with us how she got started and what inspired her. They were seen by a photographer and he asked me to paint them. It started that way. I am inspired by poses, colors and animals.
