David Cata’s Skin As A Canvas

Photography // Tuesday, September 09, 2014
For his photographic work, artist David Catá turns to more alternative mediums, more specifically his own skin. His work draws inspiration from memory and our interactions with the people in our lives. In many of his images, Cata physically stitches the likenesses of people that have made some sort of impression on his life. Cata explains, “Everyone we meet makes us in someway. Their image projects on us, reminding us where we come from. Their lives turn into a part of ours. Every stitch represents them over my skin, physical pain is not a boundary, it unites us more by thinking of the marks on my hand as an affective act, that my thinking, at one time, my hand has touched their hand”.
