Description Red wine, black and red ink, upcycled musical partition and upcycled newspaper collage.Random thoughts on a night of insomnia.We think about weird things in the middle of the night when we can’t sleep. The mind plays tricks, strange notions come out to play.The paper cuttings belong to different stories, but they construct a new story: an erotic fantasy of the sleeping woman and the development of her relationship with an imaginary lover.
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.
