Mary Maka’s Digital Illustrations Evoke the Tender Coexistence of Humans and Nature

Feminine deities intertwine with nature in Mary Maka’s digital illustrations. Depicting the deep connection between humans and the environment, the artist (previously) questions the prospect of maintaining a harmonious bond with other living creatures. Though holistic coexistence pervaded mythological narratives, can that type of kinship still exist today?

Simultaneously emanating an aura of gentleness and power, each figure almost completely melds into the lush environments they find themselves in. “By choosing women to embody these deities, the illustrations celebrate feminine strength and vulnerability, depicting women as an integral part of the forces of the natural world,” says Maka. 

The artist’s first textile works will be on view in Belgrade this August, so stay updated through her Behance and Instagram.
