Gesine Marwedel's Bodypaintings
Using the human body as her canvas, artist Gesine Marwedel creates amazing works of body art that will have you staring in awe. The artist draws upon the shape of a person's twisted body, head, and limbs to produce intricate optical illusions that appear to be landscapes, animals, and all sorts of elaborate designs. At first glance, many of the compositions, which are set against solid black or white backgrounds, appear to be traditional paintings. It's only upon closer inspection that the muscles of an arm or the folds of a leg reveal themselves to the viewer.
