COLLECTION: WOMEN

Since I began studying the life and oeuvre of this young art photographer, Lene Marie Fossen (1986-2019, Norway), I knew I had to paint her. So this is an homage to her.As I’ve mentioned in some descriptions of my work, what interests me as a creator is abnormality. So the sicknesses and its impact on human experience are one of my interests. I made this work with deep respect and admiration towards this woman and artist.


I made up this work after reading Leonora Carrington's story, "When they were on the edge".

In this piece, I searched to create an unusual poetic image.  The work shows an unknown woman, in a “waxy” posture, in a garden of a psychiatric asylum. This piece was based on several screenshots from a public medical video documentary from the early 1900s.

I attend to art workshops where physical models pose to us, the attendees. On most occasions, I ask myself what would the mindset of the model might be. I try to decipher it while working. This personal dissertation, whether or not is real, helps me to make up my work.

I conceived this work while reading “Profilers: Leading Investigators Take you Inside the Criminal Mind” by Campbell, John H. (John Henry); DeNevi, Don (2004). I made the piece with deep respect for the woman involved in one the cases. Another thing, my work isn’t an apology for crime. It’s just my interpretation of a phenomenon.

Since I began studying the life and oeuvre of this young art photographer, Lene Marie Fossen (1986-2019, Norway), I knew I had to paint her. This artist suffered from anorexia and chose to make self portraits. The environment where she made up her work is a deserted 14th century leprosarium in Chios, Greece. I made this work with deep respect and admiration towards this woman and artist.

I assist in art workshops where diverse women pose for us, the attendees. Every time I paint or sketch the model’s body, I try to unravel what’s her state of mind. This intimate personal exercise, regardless of its results, helps me to accomplish my work.

This work has a particular technical treatment. I began painting it with traditional techniques–acrylics–and ended up the work using digital painting. In this latter environment, I tried to emulate the acrylic opaque strokes using thick brushes.

The drive that a character has in a true crime documentary inspired me to create this artwork. So, the artwork's title, the character's gesture and mood, the special use of light on its face, the close-up format and the palette make up the atmosphere of the work.

As a creator, I’ve always been concerned with abnormality and its effects in human life. To create this work, I read and watched testimonials of persons united in the same body (some even were twins) living “intersected lives”, such as the admirable story of Abby and Brittany Hensel and many others. I created this work with deep respect for these people.

Making up artwork related to women is something I find fascinating. Based on a physical model, while creating the work, I try to decipher the woman’s state of mind. That emotional tone, whether or not is real, helps me to develop my work.

Women

Welcome to this collection.

What interests me as a creator is abnormality and its impact on human life. I make my work with deep respect towards the women on which I make my studies.

In this collection, I interpret and portray historical females; some renowned characters, others anonymous, but all of their biographies called my attention as an artist and as a woman. I treat most of these creations with drama. This means that, in every work, I try to grasp the character's frantic condition and beauty. 

Art Techniques

The techniques I use are traditional (oil and acrylic, crayon, pencil, clay sculpting, etc.) and digital painting (digital tablet, Photoshop, 3D sculpture, etc.).
