A Peruvian artist based in Philadelphia, Cecilia Paredes experiments with her own body. In particular, by painting designs on herself to blend into various backgrounds, creating illusion of “disappearing” into the landscape. For example, in the past, she has transformed herself into animals, plants or her surroundings simply by using body paint. Meanwhile, her latest work sees her fade into the background in a series called ‘Landscapes’. The collection shows parts of her body – mainly her back and her hands – painted in the same design as the wallpaper she is standing in front of. Working just like camouflage, the effect makes it hard to distinguish Ms Paredes from the wallpaper.
