“Imagine a world where your words appear on your skin. Would you be more careful of what you say?” This profound question is what Israeli artist, Ronit Bigal explores with her series entitled Body Scripture II.
These gorgeous photographs are an interpretation of the human body, re-imagining it as an abstract landscape. She shoots her subjects completely nude and then tops her digital photos with intricate floral ornamentation or calligraphy of Biblical scripture in black Indian ink, leaving us to discover and question what it is we are actually looking at. Bigal’s intent is to “arouse the viewer’s curiosity and take us on a journey of unforeseen surprise”.
