The Hold represents another highly important subject of Inga Noir’s paintings – the naked body. The artist frequently portrays naked, nameless bodies with covered, hidden identities and conveys not erotic implications but rather emotions or deeper ideas. By covering the face with a geometric form Inga Noir not only creates a neutral atmosphere but also continues her search for collective memory and its symbols, such as the mysterious and distant Universe, Cosmos. While uncovering a small glimpse of this starry Universe Inga Noir invites to dream, think and dig deeper, under the layers of cloths or, as in this instance, beneath the physical appearance – the face.
