Mariska Karto – I Crave You

You could be forgiven for thinking that this is a painting at a quick glance as I did.  The swaths of material encompassing the porcelain skin of the naked women.  The soft finish to the whole piece, the lack of background enhancement echoing works of art  completed by individuals such as Caravaggio.  Definition in the body, identifying the movement of the muscles replicating the work of masters such as Da Vinci.  This is actually a photograph taken by Mariska Karto as part of her baroque diversity body of work.

Karto on speaking about her work, has identified that her photos are the link between art work of the past and the technological age which we are now in.  Her work acting as a homage to the baroque and renaissance eras.

Karto blends her experience as a figurative sketcher and textile artist to bring to life her photography which she achieves with mastery.

The emotions and style captured in each piece, throws the audience in to the dream like world created by masters long ago.  This particular photo bringing feelings of melancholia and very much reminds me of paintings of Venus.  Her perfect skin and lack of fear of her own body, displaying her form to the audience in the mirror.

The different textiles used in the piece brings the work in to the renassiance, and a feeling of luxury.  The detail of the highly patterned material picked out, with layers which highlight each different fabric.
