We are only Human after all

A collection of Fine Art Prints that are about the nature of humans. What are their motivation, their fears, their goals. What defines a person's inner life. It's an attempt to visualize the challenges and complexity of personhood.

Perfect!

Print on Fine Art Paper

 

Women tend to strive for perfection but that's an unreachable goal. Imperfection is reality. According to journalist Jessica Hagy, perfection leaves no room for priorities, no space for humanness, no time for joy. Striving for it leads to breakdowns, burning out, eating disorders and self-hatred. The pursuit of perfection is a Sisyphean task. It is unrewarding, frustrating, and worst of all: entirely subjective. Perfection looks different and means different things to everyone. American author Anna Quindlen calls it the perfection trap and suggests giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.

Quest

- Print on Fine Art Paper -

A woman's life is dominated by the search for something: identity, acceptance, recognition, equal rights, meaning and happiness. There always seem to be obstacles in her way, real or imaginary. They interfere with her goals and restrain her from being successful. How to overcome difficulties and cope with life? Wish for serenity to accept the things you cannot change, have the courage to change the things you can, and have the wisdom to know the difference.

Scrambled Nature

- Print on fine Art Paper

The inner essence of human beings is fathomless and incomprehensible. Their personalities are composed of various factors. In my imagination I see a person as a mosaic, each of the elements representing different attributes and features. This abstract portrait, as a result of distorted photography, reflects the fact how difficult it is to recognize a person's inner nature and personality. 

Information Overload

- Print on Fine Art Paper -

This artwork was created in the style of the early 20th century artistic movement 'Futurism' emphasizing the dynamism, speed, energy and power of the machine in combination with the vitality, change and restlessness of modern life. Several different techniques were used to express speed and motion, including the use of lines of force. I have set the focus on New Media and Digital Technology which make our everyday's life spin overwhelmingly faster and faster. Information overload, also called 'infoxication', occurs when our daily input exceeds our procession capacity and is likely to reduce the quality of our decisions.
