Incredible Bodypainting Disguises Woman as a Swimming Sea Turtle My Modern Met

Bodypainting Sea Turtle by Johannes Sttter

Weve seen many cutting edge body painting artists who use the human body as a canvas, and one who continuously astounds us with his nature-inspired works is Johannes Sttter. From a tropical frog to a majestic lone wolf, Sttter uses his painting skills to disguise human bodies as incredibly realistic animals. For his latest trick-of-the-eye illusion, the clever artist transforms the body of female model Sara Costabiei into a lifelike sea turtle.

Sttter captured the scene on video, which at first glance looks like a clip from a marine life documentary. The turtle is seen swimming gracefully through a blue ocean until it suddenly begins to change shape, revealing the illusion. Costabiei slowly moves from her contorted position, showing her human form and how it has been painted. While one half of her head and body are adorned in the patterns of a turtles leathery skin, her other half is painted to resemble its rounded shell.

Sttters creations are a stunning visual reminder of our connection with the natural world. You can find more of his incredible body art on his website.

Kavanaugh Dresses for Success Hyperallergic

President Trump his stated that any Supreme Court nominee he put forth would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, and that women who had abortions should be punished. His Vice President, Mike Pence, has gone so far as to demand that women who choose to abort should be forced to conduct funerals for the aborted fetus.

El Greco painted this portrait of recent Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in one of his prior archetypal incarnations in the year 1600: Fernando Nio de Guevara, who was appointed Grand Inquisitor of Spain. According to Wikipedia, During his tenure as Grand Inquisitor, the Spanish Inquisition burned 240 heretics, plus 96 in effigy. 1,628 other individuals were found guilty and subjected to lesser penalties.

While Cardinal de Guevara was probably more interested in forcibly converting Jews to Catholicism and molesting altar boys than practicing rape techniques on unsuspecting teenage girls, the themes of punishment, entitlement, and preserving the right of the religious to do anything they want under cover of textual sanction, remains a constant.

Both men were and are deeply religious Catholics, which raises the question of whether Pope Francis will ever acknowledge a womans right to ownership of her body and its reproductive functions, thus pulling the textual rug out from under this kind of abusive, functionary thug.

Suellen Rocca Turns an Inward Eye Hyperallergic

In the 1960s, Suellen Rocca was a member of the Hairy Who, a group of six artists who attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in the first part of the decade and exhibited together from 1966 to 1969. Though they worked independently, their art is collectively rowdy, celebratory, and vital. Their aesthetic is all-encompassing their sources range from comics to Mesopotamian art. Roccas work, in particular, relies in large doses on images from jewelry catalogues and kindergarten workbooks, and of household goods. The groups teachers at SAIC, notably Whitney Halstead and Ray Yoshida, promoted a nonhierarchical view of world art and culture and made ample use in their instruction of the natural-history collections in Chicagos Field Museum. Roccas drawings, paintings, and objects from that period use abstracted, intimate forms to create a personal iconography often in hieroglyphs of repeating elements that elicits a sense of pleasure in romance, female sexuality, and domestic life. By 1968, Rocca was married with two young children; she balanced motherhood with work in her studio. It was wonderful, she recalls. It was a happy time.

But in 1975, she and her husband divorced, and Rocca stopped making art during the 1970s. When she returned to artmaking in 1981 (also returning to Chicago from the Bay Area), her work was decidedly different. Anxiety, threat, and psychic distress became the subjects of ferocious drawings, with titles such as Its a Secret (1981), Scary Travel (1981), and Dont (1981). Rocca maintained some visual themes from her 60s work, including figures, cars, hands, and bags, but her formerly joyful iconographies become syntactically dark, with the addition of knives, poison, and flame-like forms. By the end of the decade, however, her drawings took a curious turn. Rather than try to regain the playful symphony of forms that characterizes her work from the 60s, Rocca pursued and honed a new area of exploration, her interior life.

In Letters to a Young Poet (1929), Rainer Maria Rilke writes, We have no reason to mistrust our world, for it is not against us. Has it terrors, they are our terrors; has it abysses, those abysses belong to us; ar...
