Work/video
Transformher, 2016, 8:00
It’s about a new way of thinking and using paint and brush stroke in the digital and time-based 21st-century world of art. Digital brush strokes have all sorts of possibilities to transform, and be ‘driven’ by other information. This art work is also concerned with the timeless subject of the human figure and how it can be represented and evolve together with the subconscious or a deeper level of consciousness and how it can change. The motif of psychological change in the art work is in reference to Karl Jung’s theory of the Anima, the inner feminine side in man and Animus, the inner masculine side of women. Jung identified 4 stages of development of the Anima and Animus, all of which are represented in the video.
