The realm of art that exists somewhere between makeup and costume called body painting is obvious when walking through the Garden of Unearthly Delights.
Body painting has long been a part of people and ceremony but now more than ever we do it just for the fun of it and the art of it. An opportunity for the artist to bring some normally hidden aspect of the wearer into visual expression.
I love the art on this girl’s face as it transforms her in to some reptilian otherworldly creature. An almost alien beauty, I can’t help wondering if what I see represents some deeper aspect of her personality or if it is all just part of the fun of being in The Garden.
