Carla Janse van Rensburg - Artist Bio
LunAscention is an elaborate performance artwork by artist Carla JvR.
Just because it is an art performance does not mean it is fake, for we are all performing all of the time.
LunAscention can also be seen as an alter ego of the artist.
And now LunAscention has grown beyond the artist's imagination, that now the artist must be featured on their artworks' website.
Carla JvR is a multidisciplinary artist working mostly performatively.
They are interested in healing, magickal practices and the liberation of those who have historically been othered.
All prints are available for sale either as a pre-printed and shipped artwork at $777 / artwork excluding shipping or as a printable download at $222 / artwork.
