Ariana Page Russell
is currently based out of Brooklyn, New York, USA. Russell has dermatographia
, a condition in which her skin is hypersensitive, causing painless, temporary welts that emerge when lightly stroked, scratched, rubbed, and sometimes even slapped. Russell exploits her condition in her artwork by creating patterns on different parts of her body and photographing them as the skin becomes irritated and swells. Russell has an upcoming show slated for November 2011 at the Magnan Metz
(New York City, New York, USA) if you're in the area!
