The story behind…

In an homage to the great Renaissance Masters of the 16th and 17th centuries, Karto creates a scene where figures clash between the old and new, their poses baroque while their tattoos fresh. Life and death, angels and demons merge into one another in this powerful photographic work. The three doves fly away as a symbol of the holy trinity, while the skull looks on as the classic metaphor of death.

Mariska Karto

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.
