The series “Illusions” is a group of images from a photo staging, where the artist has used common people to point out the artificial elements, which we are surrounded by. Recently known to public is the spray tanning that is applied on people, giving a fake tan, which in the mind of people represents the beauty of a person. Artist shows the truth behind the scenes, the artificial elements are being ridiculed as superficial images, which rather devaluates person’s individuality, than adding anything positive to it. Murka has tested the characteristic features of humans in her previous work, this time the analyze took her to a discovery, that most of the models were indeed pleased with the tan and wished to have the tan fully
