Every masterpiece has its secrets

When I was little, my grandfather would sit me on his lap, put the newspaper in front of me, give me a pen, and say: “Sign here”. Gradually, I started scribbing on almost anything I found, filling it not only with signatures, but also with drawings. The other day, I was telling my partner about my obsession with notebooks. I have so many notebooks filled with thoughts, numbers, drawings, things that aren’t even important… but I love looking at them ❤️ Today, I found my old diary and realized that I’m still writing one, just in a different way and, with technology, sometimes in other formats. In this photo, I’m sharing some of the marks of my memory.
Inspired by the traditional Swedish festival that celebrates the summer solstice, in “Midsommar” the transition from one season to another is represented with a sleeve of flowers that, little by little, disappear to leave the rest of the body naked. I inspired by Ari Aster 's film “Midsommar”, whose aesthetic “casted a “spell on her. For a long time, I had in mind to make a seasonal representation in the style of Botticelli, but I did not have a completely defined idea. After watching the film, it occurred to me to cover half of my body with flowers, representing the spring, leaving the other half uncovered representing summer and the transition between both seasons.
