Maya Skarzenski is an interdisciplinary artist fusing together painting, textiles, and photography. Her work explores the intersections between the abject and the beautiful. Material exploration allows Skarzenski to create bodily imagery that is sensual, fragile, playful, and ambiguous. Her work salvages beauty from the fear and unease in relation to the human body. Developed from her fascination with the body’s dis/connection with the self, she uses it to reflect on fluidity in sexuality, physical health, and identity.
