In the wilderness of the forest in Lebanon, Connecticut, world-renowned photographer Raphael Mazzucco became one with nature. Surrounded by the hooting of owls, powerful fox cries and supernatural light illuminating the trees, he conjured the inspiration for his Gaia collection. This, he says, is “Mother Earth getting ready to push back”.
In a nod to history and time, this stunning series of original mixed media pieces demonstrates the strength and beauty of the female form. To bring an organic rawness, each artwork is embellished with elements of nature, including tree bark, foliage, feathers, flowers and sand.
Raphael says: “The colours in this collection are important. I have muted the colours in the base image and then added the layers of paint, resin and materials to make the piece pop with colour and vibrancy.”
