The Artist Who Literally Paints Herself Into A Corner

Peruvian artist Cecilia Paredes takes anonymity to a whole new level-by painting herself into the background.

She cleverly matches the background patterns and paints them onto her canvas naked body in order to "blend in", although she purposefully retains part of her human form, like her hair and the edge of her silhouette, as if to say "No matter how hard I try, I will never fully fit in". What do these works say to you?

Answer: Very Carefully...
Really though, the post says she uses "an array of make-up, body paint and costumes". And I'm sure having lots of mirrors on hand can't hurt.
