“I PULL AWAY TIME FROM ITS STRUCTURE AND THEN

TIME APPEARS TO BE JUST A DEFINITION.”

 

Mariska Karto is a photo artist/ digital artist. She is based in the Netherlands and from original, Surinam (South-America), Indonesia (Asia) and Dutch (Europe).

I create and combine elements of historical and contemporary times in my work. I use the body to express as well as my love for fabrics and textiles to create a sensitive or persuasive atmosphere in my work.

This is reflected in mystique, heavenly, dark and dreamy creations mixed with my own contemporary influences in my life. 

Without history there is no present, without present there is no future, no dreams, no memories not something to “go” for.

This is an element that we find in every human being, with all his or her shortcomings and dark sides, it has been a big role in the past and now.

The hyper photo collages, I create are stories of our travels in life and sometimes when they are brought together, they become one journey.

I have started to create a surrealistic city/urban – landscapes and let the city evolve in my own way. Barriers of memory and time are broken and boundless thinking takes it over.

 

 

 

ARTISTS STATEMENT

Without history there is no present, without present there is no future, no dreams, no memories not something to “go” for.

The works I create are about “not being perfect”. This is an element that we find in every human being with all his or her shortcomings and dark sides, it has been a big role in the past and now.

The fresco’s I create are stories of our travels in life and sometimes when they are brought together, they become one journey. Secretly, we all have mean monsters deep inside ourselves, some of them are clumsy, very lovely and lonely. So, you can ask yourself  “are all monsters evil”? And what is their purpose?

This element is reflected in all our facets of our lives. In social relations, the battle for power, politics, an image of yourself you want to show the world outside. We strive to get the best out of ourselves, we want to be beautiful and perfect, but in the meantime, we protect ourselves by becoming a not-so-nice-person, even a monster. But sometimes these not-so-nice-persons are also very nice and clumsily…  – It makes you feel uncomfortable by looking at them, and still love them.

I think it is important that there’s soul in my work, created with digital tools and techniques, in the end ,it is the creator/the human factor which ensures that there are soul and magic to experience. Computers can’t do this. It is the soul that will coordinate the work and ensures that it is shaped.
