Cecilia Paredes' Camouflage Wallpaper
Peruvian artist Cecilia Paredes' latest work involves the artist experimenting with her own body by painting floral wallpaper designs on herself to blend in with the background.
“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.”
