Artist Natasha Law
I feel deeply for the body language in Natasha Law's ladies. Body and movement have always been an interesting subject matter to me. Body language can speak such an intimate, potent language. Using gestures of form, a person can share what lies underneath their exterior and in one small movement you have the power to make someone feel at ease or a tiny twitch can be cause for an offensive type of energy, shooing a person away.
In Law's work, I see their insecure self doubts, as well as their divine Goddess-like hopes. They speak a narrative of who we are as females and what we strive for beyond the every day expectations of life. In all her pictures, I sense these "no-faced" ladies all want something, which makes the title of her recent show at Eleven Gallery all too perfect. It's no love lost but vulnerability and strength all in one go.
