Oil on mylar.
Reborn is about a woman’s connection with its body and nature. Body image and identity are concepts that nowadays are very common to be problematic in our society, but what if we instead of being a problem we start embracing them? With this piece I want to encourage others to feel good and accept the nature of our bodies, the same way we accept nature and its intrinsic value.
