Decorative and Surreal
Created as a mix of traditional media and digital collage, this artwork’s techniques reflects my creative journey. Most people think that artists’ ideas and inspiration come as a coherent, linear train of thoughts.The fact is, an artwork is a reflection of a lifetime of experiences, thoughts and ideas. Life is not linear, events many times happen randomly. Ideas come sometimes in a linear way, sometimes they just emerge, like surrealist dreams in our REM sleep stage. If you ask me “what inspired you to create this work?”, I would tell you that inspiration is a forced experience and that the real experience is the life we live and the dreams we dream. So my answer to this question would be a story:
Here’s the Story of this Artwork
This January, me and my husband went on a vacation down to Florida. We got a well deserved break from the New England winter cold and absorbed as much sun as we could.
When we returned to our chilly Northern proximity, as we were driving home from the airport, we passed by one of our neighborhoods as the sun was just about to set. I looked over to this hill that I see so many times, but this time it looked different.
Eerie, gloomy, stormy, but beautiful. A dark beauty, contrasting in the most obvious way to my recent sunny beach experience. Sometimes, the encounters we go through make us see the world differently. The same hill that most of the times is just… the hill on that particular street… was now a different picture.
So we stopped and I snapped some photos. At home, I pulled the photographs and looked again. At night, I woke up and the images started emerging. The next day I painted this surreal wall art.
Aquatic life mingles into a totally unrelated winter art subject. Repeat patterns of tropical fish float in a surreal way, face to face with their enemies, the sea lions. This is a battle for survival, a metaphor about climate change and the opposing forces that pull our planet apart: the force of Nature and the oblivious force of humanity.
