Do you know when you’ve just had it with the world and you just want to disappear? Peruvian artist Cecilia Paredes takes that notion and makes it into her art. She’s the subject of her own richly patterned photographs, matching bold printed backdrops with her painted skin, custom clothing or both. Like the most introverted of wallflowers she fades into the background, as the shape of her body and the colour of her hair become the only indication that she’s present.
