The story behind…

In this fresco, Mariska weaves a story. Not a story of a single person or moment in time, but the story of our modern world and the clash between the past and present. Cruise ships and airplanes dance with doves and winged horses. Through a smokey atmosphere emerges scenes of shopping, technology, fitness, violence, passion and peace, all pulled out of time, now flowing together in an epic vision. With one bite from the apple Eve has set forth this future upon us.

About Mariska Karto:

Mariska Karto is a fine art photographer born in Suriname and raised in the Netherlands. The breadth of her oeuvre is a masterful homage to Classicism in art history. Her multidisciplinary skill as a figurative sketcher draws a connection to the meditative practises of Renaissance draughtsmen like Leonardo, and her knowledge of fabrics as a textile artist is comparable to the dexterity of Ingres and Titian. However it is Karto’s mastery of contemporary photography that leads viewers to witness realistic images compelled by classical tradition.
