This little artwork belongs to my "under my skin" series. Oil on canvas.
I really enjoy working on this series, because it's very offering to me.
On the conceptual level, it's like playing with two types of creation - the human body as a divine creation and the tattoos as an ancient human creation.
On the visual level, I approach the beauty of the woman's body and the tattoo drawings as two complementary or opposite elements, depending on the composition.
In some artworks, the tattoos are very subtle and their role is to emphasize even more the beauty and the fragility of the woman's body. While in others, on the contrary, the tattoo drawings look more harsh and they play the same counterpoint to the finesse of the body.
