12 Astrological Symbols by Trina Merry

New York Visual Artist Trina Merry (previously here and here) spent one year painting 60 people for this special interpretation of the astrological symbols.

"From November 2014 to May 2015 I sculpted, body painted and photographed 60 models–including myself– into the 12 symbols of the zodiac.I view this work as my way to examine the impact of astrology in a current world in a modern aesthetic, while maintaining the sensibilities, skills and stories of crucial works of art from thousands of years before me."

"I spent anywhere between two to nine hours positioning and painting my models with non-toxic, water based body paint and airbrush paint. Once painting was complete, I had to meticulously reposition everyone to take the final photo."

"Each painting I make only exists for a few spirited moments before the models are out of place and are on their way home on the subway, covered in paint, with only an image on a camera and a small amount of video footage to document what we created."
