Erotics and body are the vital themes in the works of Natalia LL , who has been dealing with them since the beginning of her artistic career, often using the form of a self-portrait. The artist is most commonly associated with the feminist movement, although her pieces alongside the current women’s issues often apply to universal themes – religion, mysticism, philosophy of body and soul. In search of inner harmony, Natalia LL often depicts interior conflict, contradictory emotions and feelings tormenting the human being. In a series of photographs Eroticism of Fear, Natalia LL presents her naked body in a forceful confrontation with the military element (a gas mask). She covers her face with it, applying a shade of aggression and mystery, contradictions and anxiety to the nudity. In this way she analyzes the female body as an unexplored, mysterious being.
