From Orly Faya”

‘Today, people get painted into the earth to celebrate their bodies, to celebrate weddings and anniversaries, to celebrate their time spent in a particular location or their homes, to heal illness and disease and to celebrate new health after surviving terminal conditions and to simply enjoy the experience under the brush.

‘There are many reasons why people want to connect with nature, with their fundamental human origins and I appreciate that the value of this process is far more than final artworks – rather is is about healing through vulnerability trust magic and beauty.’
