Description Black and gold ink on cold-pressed watercolor paper.Dimensions: 2636 cm, 10 1/4 x 14 1/8What the meaning of this image is? I rather created it based on the idea of narcissism, or the idea of introspection, reflexion, meditation, or even introversion, secluding oneself, shutting oneself away, abandonning the world. The woman shuts herself away from the world and reflects on herself.Then I asked two friends what they think this image means, and they said it could be a woman in gods hand. I liked the way my rather depressive idea could be interpreted in such a positive way, so I gave this image the title Lady in the hand of God.
Ina Mar, Munich, Germany Member Since June 2007 Artist Statement In 2001 I created my first experimental series called "Lightcurves", where I transformed the body into landscape through lighting effects and accessory objects. Since 2001, I have been exploring the notion of metamorphosis and hybridism, mixing media and transforming the representational into abstract, through lighting effects, shooting techniques (such as "traveling" of the camera) or photomanipulation.
My more recent works explore surrealism and the irrationality of dreams and emotions, using a mixed technique: photo, photomanipulation, pencil or ink drawing on paper, paper collage, digital painting... I don't use stock images - my material is "home made": I use my own digital photographs, vintage objects, drawings and textures, collected through years of travels. Most of the fonts are "home made" too - handwritten or "recomposed" using fragments of old letters and notes.
Favourite subjects: the human body, the human mind and the natural environment.
