The big interest of bodypainting seems to be the possibility it offers to directly ‘paint’ the reality (and what more perfect part of the reality than the human body ?) without having to make any kind of representational work. You just put the paint on the bodies themselves, and the power of painting simply ‘shines’… In such case, the reality is used to its best potential in the service of the painting itself.

     In this sense, the optimal kind of bodypainting would be one that uses the body as a support for any type of non-representational painting. One of this kind is the work of Yasmina Alaoui who paints the photographies by Marco Guerra with layers of ink geometric drawings.
