In her series titled ‘Positive Biology’, Czech born and Brooklyn based photographer Marie Tomanova focuses on the nature of identity, gender, displacement and sexuality.
Combining portraits and self-portraiture, the artist creates pictures with a hint of naiveté and raw honesty. Her series shows photographs of a red lipstick between pointed toes, a naked woman hiking through the snow and a bottom behind a shower curtain. Tomanova has many sweet memories connected to the photo ‘Jeans Jacket’ which she took in Northern California. For her project she lived in a trailer in the middle of Redwoods which she perceived as a magical place with deers, wild boars and a sky full of stars. The artist has shown her work at solo and group exhibitions at A.I.R. Gallery in New York, OTGF in Los Angeles and many others.
