Lasciate ogni speranza, voi ch’entrate

Hiding symbols in an hommage to two of my all time favourite artists.

This could be a tattoo if I’m ever able to get one.

My kingdoms #1

Recently I started to practice linocut. Since then it became a new passion. It combines planification, work and reward in a different way than drawing.

On of my projects with linocut is to represent different feelings and sentiments with castles. I won’t tell you more about it but you are welcome to guess.

Drawing challenges by Tangomiva #21 : inhibition, Repression

Every time, 1 new compulsory theme, 3 mindsets, 3 ways to show it.

Drawings done by Eva, Naomi and ThatRestlessPlatypus.

That Restless Platypus : For this theme, I was already working on a thematic series of drawing on the theme “lost in my own mind” so I decided to include this subject in it.
This drawing is both a really physical and symbolic representation of the psychological concept of repression (Considering the heart, symbolic siege of emotions, enclosed in bones with give us our form and illustrate our social standing as well as being an Aristotelian prison for the mind). It is also that all too familiar feeling of burning pressure that I associate with inhibitions and repression.

 

Eva : My production tries to answer the subject  “Repression, Inhibition (and rejection)” Each character represents one of those actions. the sculpture “The rape of the Sabine women” By Giambologna is decontextualized and only used for the actions of rejection and withdrawal by the characters. The wider theme of the subject  “Lost in the mind” is shown by the corpses imbricated, disordered and tormented forming an S line with the continuity of bodies and stares. The 3 realistic characters appear in a chimeric space which, plastically presents the most matter.  Some force appears out of their heads, representing their thoughts, and keep propagating to take possession of their bodies.
” above matter there is thought, above thought there is the ideal” De Meissonier

Street=Art : Porto

Observational drawing by That Restless Platypus

I just came back from a few days in Porto and I’m feeling quite nostalgic. I would never have guessed that a city in Portugal would make me feel that way. Not that I don’t like the country but I’ve never felt a connection like  I did with Sweden or in Italia… Well, I do know.

This drawing is the Majestic Café, one iconic place to eat and drink in Porto and to me it will remain a symbol for the joy of new and unexpected meetings.

More from Porto soon…

Portraits : Let’s start from the beginning

Still trying to get better at faces (spoiler alert : it’s not really working).
since I have some troubles with the position of the different parts of the face I tried to think about what they are on.

Portraits : Perceptions…

Experimenting on auto-portraits, I can clearly see how the fabric of reality distorts around our egos.

When drawing ,it’s even harder to be fair with ourselves than with others since it’s so easy to be obsessed by every imperfection. So when you have serious hang-ups your all perception of yourself can start turning around those specific points…

…And then you don’t even remember how real or unreal is the way you see yourself.

Drawing challenges by Tangomiva #19 : “Inquiétude” (Concern, worry, anxiety)

Every time, 1 new compulsory theme, 3 mindsets, 3 ways to show it.

Drawings done by Eva, Naomi and ThatRestlessPlatypus.

Eva : This drawing was inspired by E.Hopper, Hitchcock and Allan Poe but it’s more disturbing than anxiety.
Naomi : Brain and Heart, two organs that make us feel anxiety…
That Restless Platypus : This is a personal depiction of the feeling of anxiety caused by complexes and hang-ups leading to a never ending concern (un-quiet)
