Tankar kring de röda damerna 

 

Jag är normalt högst ovillig att prata om mina konstverk eftersom bild är ett språk i sig som förtjänar större respekt och integritet än det normalt möts av i samhället. Men jag har faktiskt en del jag vill kommunicera om hur konstverken kom till.

 

Ett vanligt missförstånd är att bilderna skulle vara selfies. Det är de inte. Jag har visserligen använt mig själv som `objekt´ och det är intressant i sig självt eftersom jag samtidigt är subjekt. Både betraktaren och den betraktade samtidigt. De flesta bilder har genom historien tagits av män. Betraktaren påverkar processen… kanhända säger dessa bilder mer om männen än om de fotograferade kvinnorna. Själv tror jag att det handlar om männens inre (förtryckta) kvinnor – anima, som ges mycket begränsat utrymme i vårt samhälle.

 

För länge sedan, när Madonna var i sitt esse, fascinerade det mig hur hon tog kontrollen över sin image på scenen. Genom att piska sina offer skedde en förskjutning som jag fann intressant då. Den manliga publiken var förhäxad av hennes `kvinnliga´ yttre, men hon betedde sig `manligt´. Hon agerade ut en `manlig´ repertoar inför en manlig publik som därigenom blev till voyeurer av sitt eget `manliga´ beteende. Och hon var subjektet med stort S. Jag ogillar våld i alla dess former och tror inte att man kan upphäva förtryck genom att bli förtryckare! Men det var den här leken med manligt/kvinnligt…. över/under… subjekt/objekt… som triggade igång mitt bildarbete.

 

En av mina bilder heter Performance. Det är just performance jag håller på med. Jag har en exhibitionistisk sida samtidigt som jag är oerhört blyg och tillbakadragen. Har alltid varit fascinerad av scenen – att gå in i en annan personlighet inför publik. Min scenskräck gör detta omöjligt. Men jag har löst det hela genom att skapa en förskjutning i tid/rum! Dvs. jag gör min performance, är samtidigt subjekt/objekt… man/kvinna… och skapar min publik genom att lägga ut bilderna i cyberrymden. De finns över hela världen, på olika plattformer: i virtuella gallerier, på konstsajter, jungianska sajter, museisajter, performance-sajter, bildsajter, fotosajter, Flickr, Facebook….. Jag får mycket feedback, från hela världen, från både konstprofessorer, fotoproffs och lekmän. En del tycker att mina bilder för tankarna till Andy Warhol. Jag blev kontaktad av en kvinna som tyckte att The Red Lady för tankarna till popdivan Stevie Nicks. Själv har jag blivit inspirerad av Cindy Shermans sätt att bygga upp sina bilder.

 

Min skådespelardröm har således gått i uppfyllelse. Jag får utlopp för mitt intresse för arketyper. Och jag har förverkligat drömmen om mitt Konstens Hus http://KonstensHus.n.nu genom upptäckten av vad Internet kan användas till! En global, virtuell mötesplats där korsbefruktning kan ske i det oändliga, eftersom det är fritt och gratis. Mycket demokratiskt, alltså.

 

Bildernas titlar ger ledtrådar, men annars vill jag inte tala om själva verken. Ja, jag valde de senaste 2 verken därför att de passar ihop rent estetiskt. Min världsbild är EJ dualistisk. För mig ryms ALLT inom var och en. Men det omgivande samhället påverkar starkt vad som tillåts komma till uttryck, som om man kört fast i ett svart/vitt tänkande. Undrar om det kan ha med vårt linjära tänkande att göra, med vår uppfattning om tiden, som egentligen bara är en konstruktion. Jag har lärt mycket av mitt nära förhållande till katter. Eftersom de inte censurerar sig för att vara till lags är det så tydligt att ALLT ryms inom varje individ. Tigris är en stor och stark hane, men han är exceptionellt moderlig och omhändertagande – allt det som i människans värld tillskrivs kvinnan. Henny är en ung, handikappad hona, men hon har extremt `manlig´ energi – hon vill gärna brotta ner de andra katterna och boxas med dem. Katten är ett otroligt kärleksfullt djur, men visar även mycket sadistiska sidor. Mina damer kan vara mycket ljuva – och SAMTIDIGT starka, målmedvetna och handlingskraftiga. Jag irriterade mig i åratal på `feministiska´ program såsom Freja  och liknande efterkommande radioprogram, som ensidigt skildrade kvinnor i offerposition. Jag tyckte inte alls att det var `feministiskt´ såsom jag uppfattar begreppet. Manligt och kvinnligt finns i var och en. För att harmoni ska råda bör det vara balans mellan yin och yang – detta gäller i hela skapelsen!

”The Red Lady” – digital photography by Eva Fidjeland

ON FRIDAY, May 2 at 6 p.m. there will be an art opening at Hardeko, Björkstigen 3 in Bispgården, Ragunda, Jämtland, Sweden, featuring Swedish photographer Eva Fidjeland and other artists. AthensArt is a network of artists living in different parts of the world, and every year they exhibit their work together. This year Sweden has been chosen as the country for AthensArt’s annual arts festival.

THE SHOW, which runs through May 11, is organized by Center of Arts 4 Seasons and Hardeko and Mr. Geert Weggen. For information about the participating artists, please visit http://athensart-2010.ning.com/.

EVA FIDJELAND is an artist, poet and photographer who lives in Orrefors, Sweden. She was born in Stockholm in 1955. Her art reflects cultural influences from childhood years spent in Portugal, Lebanon, Iran and Afghanistan. In 1978 she went to live in the artists’ village Ein Hod in Israel, where she learnt the art of making stained glass from Professor Joseph Chaaltiel http://ein-hod.info/artists/ora.

Eva Fidjeland´s Innovative Style of Digital Art


 

ARTbracket

                          

 

Eva Fidjeland’s ”Metamorphosis”

A new trend in visual art is emerging due to artist Eva Fidjeland’s implementation of an innovative, creative approach to the process of manufacturing art. The artist is known internationally for creating in a variety of mediums, from the traditional canvas to digital, and is currently presenting her work in a new style of collaborative art. The artist is displaying her creative expertise within the various mediums and is also transforming her physical expression and character for introduction within her creations. Fidjeland is seamlessly incorporating aspects of digital technology with visual and performing art, creating unique works that tell stories through intricate details.

 

 

 

Eva Fidjeland’s ”Dragon”

Fidjeland’s extensive collection of digital photography captures the aesthetic details of her subjects, including still, animal and plant life. In a digital work entitled “Dragon”, Fidjeland presents a close perspective upon her subject, highlighting multiple intricate aesthetic details. Notice how the detail of the wings is of a different aesthetic quality than the legs and other areas of art. In the midst of these details, emerges the dragon fly’s expression, providing the observer with a neighboring view of its moment in time. 

 

 

 

Eva Fidjeland’s ”The Red Lady II”

Various stages of human expression are now at the center of Fidjeland’s innovative style in art. In a work entitled “The Red Lady II”, the artist takes a snapshot of a human expression, and accentuates specific details through texture, color and shading. The artist’s creative decisions, particularly pertaining the color and shading, establishes a precise expression of emotion and tone.  Texture is a key visual factor within the art as the observers learn about Red Lady’s character through her choice of color in lipstick, the smoothness of her skin, and the covering of an eye with her hair. 

 

Eva Fidjeland’s ”The Birdwoman X”

Each digital photograph establishes a character through expression and visual detail. The character in “Birdwoman X”, for example, possesses a different style and emotional nature than the character Red Lady. Birdwoman’s color and shading, relative to the character’s hair, eyes, skin and lips, establishes character through exquisite shadings of brown, red and green. Performing a comparative facial analysis of the two characters will result in the depiction of two unique forms of expression.

Fidjeland is pioneering a new style in visual art that uses digital technology to place emphasis on the expressions and details within creations. Her work is innovative for seamlessly collaborating visual and performing art with digital techniques.  The artist is embodying the concept of collaborative art through her creative process and details present in her creations.

The Dancer The Dancer II  
Presumably a group of self-portraits, this series of Dancer portraits is equivocally voyeuristic in the soft keyhole shadowing of the pictures edges along with the penchant for embellishing costume. I like the tempered restraint of Dancer II, which presents a darker contrast to the overall blue pattern, and a haloed richness in the saturation of the figure´s hair and sienna background. While there´s a decisiveness in the sideways profile of the head, the delicate curl of golden hair points towards her mouth as if to await declaration.The Red Lady The Red Lady IV had a decidedly different mood despite small actual changes in the model lightning and attire. Being that the subject isn´t fully transformed, I don´t  feel that different characters are being created, but that the viewer is invited into the psychological exploration of facets of an archetype. The direct stare of The Red Lady and  elevated position of her face above the viewer´s natural eye-line creates an aura of superiority or rebellious dissent, while the conflicting orange and blue hues aid the instinct of competition. In a more graphic way, the figure is also presented as a Pop diva, haughtily looking down on the viewer in her feathered boa. Provocative in stature, the light source seems to glow from within rather than from an external bright light, and therefore she holds our interest and curiousity.

Eva Fidjeland´s Art Captures the Human Experience


Eva Fidjeland´s Art Captures the Human Experience

!czx

When art captures the essence of the human experience, it reveals aspects of humanity under a bright spotlight. The art emphasizes these qualities directly, pointing observers toward images that will challenge our current perspectives of the world. The artist, as the creator of such pieces of art, is responsible for the design and creation of these images; their process is similar to the process  of unveiling, in which the artist will seek to bring the observer closer to truths through images

.!cxvg

Eva Fidjeland´s art brings observers closer to the truth of understanding the human process of healing. Fidjeland´s art exists within an extraordinary global context. The world has separated the concept of healing within a dichotomous line. Eastern cultures typically incorporate healing concepts within their aspects of a life holistically, while many western cultures view healing as the mere recovery of illness or injury. Many citizens of the world carry a perception of healing that lays somewhere in between.

!cbg

Eva Fidjeland´s art emphasizes the human need to challenge these perceptions through captivating mixed media design, color and examination of the human body. Eva Fidjeland´s art asserts the concept of healing is far from esoteric, promoting the idea that healing is a natural, organic part of the human condition that connects us to the world in which we live.

Primary Forms with a Bold Function


Primary Forms with a Bold Function

090rep I like the slight melancholy mystery of these images. In general, the softened palette and contrast evokes a faded memory, but the primary forms have a bold function.

 

`Evolution´ employs a primordial form, spiraling up out of the water like a mythic sea creature. I also see the faintly grainy quality and washed out magenta tonality as harkening back to old photographic documentary film, though I´m unsure of the media/process actually employed here. I find the vertical orientation is also unexpected for the surreal landscape, as the weighty spiral form doesn´t appear able to sustain its upward thrust for long, as it curls into itself.

1z The piece entitled `Liz´ is an enticing picture as well; some more direct photographic reference to lizards is evident, but there is also a diffused manipulation of the image that muffles direct or overt pictorial representation. The resulting image calls to mind pictographic symbolism from a host of ethnic traditions and artistic eras. In this way, `Liz´ reminds me of a mellowed Florence Putterman painting. So the piece seems less about the natural subject depicted, and more about the state of flux, or evanescent movement.
