The story behind…

In Jewish mythology Lilitha refers to a class of female demon going back to Babylonian origins. Yet in Jewish folklore, Lilitha is in fact the first wife of Adam, made from the same dirt that Adam was born of, in contrast to Eve who came from his rib. But what happened to her? Medieval Jewish mystics gathered that Lilitha left Adam after she refused to become subservient to him. She then refused to return to the Garden of Eden after she had coupled with the archangel Samael. Lilitha gave in to her dark side. Badass.

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.
