Inês Amaro

Portuguese artist Inês Amaro illustrates a world that mirrors the ego friendly- borderline narcissism rampant in many contemporary societies. As art imitates life vanity is exposed. What is striking here is the voided anatomy that narcissism latches onto. Mere fabric floats; heads and limbs omitted. Rather than the image being photographed and manipulated, each piece is hand painted, longing for a time past… a time more focused on the contents found within the body, rather than the obsession with the limbs and faces attached to it.

  1. Something very historical and eerie about these pieces. Borderline humor too. Well executed….nice!
