The Storm Is You - Josephine Cardin
“Sometimes fate is like a small sandstorm that keeps changing directions. You change direction but the sandstorm chases you. You turn again, but the storm adjusts. Over and over you play this out, like some ominous dance with death just before dawn. Why? Because this storm isn't something that blew in from far away, something that has nothing to do with you. This storm is you. Something inside of you. So all you can do is give in to it, step right inside the storm, closing your eyes and plugging up your ears so the sand doesn't get in, and walk through it, step by step. There's no sun there, no moon, no direction, no sense of time. Just fine white sand swirling up into the sky like pulverized bones. That's the kind of sandstorm you need to imagine." ― Haruki Murakami

Cardin uses a mix between photography and painting to develop her contemporary figurative art, inspired by music and dance, she explores the space between dark and light, where our past meets our present.
Her work is melancholic, full of symbolisms, and always hopeful in illustrating that as humans we have the capacity and strength to overcome our fears and obstacles while gaining from them the will to live life to its full potential.
Cardin works primarily in self-portraiture to illustrate scenes that bewitch and explore our human sensibilities through abstract stories with a visual dialogue between the subject and the artist created through harmonic gestures and magnetic artistry.
