Work and Visuals
The legend of Ikarus inspires associations to conflicting and fragile conditions under which we continue to exist precariously in this rapidily heating up world of today.
I use charcoal on paper and ember on wood and natural resins and wax to explore shapes of the human figure which echoe some of the critical positions we are all experiencing.
This file shows changes in the depictions of the human form. Physical artwork is digitized and consequently altered by using computer graphic and disign programs. Original appearance transforms. Sex may change. Form may disappear. Lines begin to overlap. New shapes appear.
Physical creation is juxtaposed to digital ways of rendering the same.
The human figure and its use in contemporary as well as in past periods of art is a main source of all of my concepts and plans to make pictures. The experimental use of mixed techniques and organic materials is another element of infinite challenge that forms my work in the studio every day.
Working with dancers and extending this field of work by going into performance came almost naturally.
