Mariska Karto

 

“I pull away time from its structure and then time appears to be just a definition.”

 

Mariska Karto is a fine art photographer, digital artist and figurative drawer.

The works she produces is related  to classical figurative art. Mariska has a spiritual connection with the classic art of Venice.

This influence is reflected in mystique, heavenly, dark  and dreamy creatures mixed with her own contemporary influences in her life.

Mariska Karto is balancing on the border between reality and dream, the works existed in this dimension have a lucid dreamlike and often surrealistic atmosphere.

Mariska is inspired by the dark clouds of life, melancholia, love, loss, anger, vulnerability and loneliness blended together with delicacy, serenity, uneasiness, symbolism and sensuality.

She creates from small personal works, zooming in people’s individuality, to large scaled fresco’s

In her fresco’s she tells a story. Not a story of a single person, but a story of our world. Our old world and our new world, blended together.
