"AESTHETICS OF NATURE" I don't care what is faulty.
This work was born in 2017, concerned with seeing the transformations of the body that a large majority of people make to be accepted in a community. I am talking about plastic surgeries and the deaths they cause. My work then raises the question: Does it make sense to think that we are more beautiful just because we have had a surgery? But while also understanding that as human beings, we are free to decide what to do with our bodies.
In this work, I want to pay tribute to these non-aesthetic bodies according to today's culture. Culture in which we have been implanted since childhood, a model of beauty dictated by television media and especially by social networks. I give through my drawings, a purely aesthetic sense of the beauty of natural bodies. I simply draw the bodies, naturally bearers of the stigmata and marks of time.
This is a series where each work has a title taken from the story of the people who posed. I used graphite, charcoal, and gold leaf on siliconized paper. The drawing symbolizing bodily expression and the gold representing the divine.
One of the works is called “Personal Perspective”; This drawing is of a woman who undressed for the first time. The non-acceptance and rejection of her body was constant in her life. It was during the body drawing workshop that a sense of resilience resonated in her. She has found the strength to love and accept herself as she is.
If nature is aesthetically beautiful and we human beings are part of nature, then wouldn't transforming our bodies in search of another beauty be unsightly?
