atlas umbra – Aktmalerei


As a French-Spanish multidisciplinary artist currently residing in Mainz, my art centers around the human form. In this age of social media and selfies, our identities can often feel obscured. Yet, within the hills and crevices of our bodies, lie the pure and honest stories of our true selves. Our bodies are illuminated with narratives that contain our insecurities, strengths, and identities, waiting to be discovered by those who are willing to seek them out.

In my series of paintings, I have endeavored to transcribe these unique stories through the interplay of light and shadow. Using a palette of pink, purple, blue, and neon colors, I have sought to illuminate the rich tapestry of identities that are woven into each of my diverse models. Through the delicate play of hues and shapes, I try to create a map that charts the contours of the human form and celebrates the beauty of each unique individual. I use my colors to convey the intricate emotional landscape that lies beneath the surface of the skin.

At the same time, I am acutely aware that the human form is more than just a canvas for color and light. It is a map of the stories that shape our lives – our struggles, our triumphs, our dreams, and our fears.

Through the subtle interplay of light and shadow, I seek to capture the contours of these stories, creating a visual language that is both poetic and deeply human.
