THE ART OF MARIA TORRES

Artist Maria Torres curates a selection of her imagery for Splendid Berlin.

 

Through my images I aim to trigger critical thinking, to inspire reflection and self exploration. Sexuality, love and spirituality are at the center of my art.

We are living a revolutionary time when it comes to our assumptions of love, gender roles and happiness. There is a longing for deeper truth. People are returning to spirituality to create experiences beyond the materially driven values of popular culture.

Push! is the first part of The Blood Series, a series of images that reflects on femininity, sexuality and the body. Push! talks about birth, abortion and the fear of parenting.


Moon Centers speaks about menstruation and it is the third part of The Blood Series, a series of images that reflects on femininity, sexuality and the body. It is inspired by the relationship between women and their blood cycle.
