Few things become increasingly beautiful and impressive the more closely you inspect them. Anyone who’s been the subject of a high-quality camera with a zoom function can tell you that. The work of Cecelia Webber proves an exception, however. Her “human body artwork” celebrates the beauty of both nature and the human form in one masterful display.
As stunning as they are complex, her images will have you pressing your nose against the screen as you mind works to deconstruct the Monarch butterfly that is in fact comprised of human forms. The dualistic nature of the imagery challenges the viewer to reevaluate their perspective of the human body, nudity, and the inherent symmetry of nature. In re-creating animals, insects, and flora using only human forms as building materials, Webber makes tangible and visual the connection between nature and the human race – something easily forgotten in a culture where Skype is the pinnacle of personal interaction and Siri is more likely to guide you home than Sirius. Cecelia Webber’s “human body artwork” will appeal to fans of nature, photography, art, and optical illusions alike.
