FINE ARTS INSPIRED BY AND MADE FOR YOUR OWN COMPANY

MYR creates art pieces about her own dynamics in life, about your organization's identity, or about your own memory. Through several conversations, I examine the essence of identity, philosophy, or an experience that is personal or inspired by your organization. The work serves as a monument of remembrance or landmark as well as a conversation piece. I'm happy to work on-site. This gives the employees the opportunity to follow the growth and to understand the art.

CHEMICAL PROCESSES

Geography of thoughts blossoms when I analyze layer by layer and build up layer by layer a visual translation inspired by landscape, travels, and thoughts. This can be a painting or a sculpture. During this process, I explore the characteristics of different materials and how they affect each other. This creates a dynamic of rejection and attraction, chaos and order. Sometimes you can see one layer through another and sometimes the deepest layer pops up through all layers. When I reach a certain effect I seal the spot with gold leaf or diamond seeds.

 

I became inspired by the image elements, processes and meanings of nature. It captivates me how layers of stone provide fertility for the root to let something beautiful exist and how some layers of soil hide the strongest signs of erosion. It fascinates me how water easily flows but repels fat. How rocks turn into sand and merged with pigment and egg-yolk I use it in an 'al-fresco' technique. Dark iron rust affected by a few tears of water shows a wide palette of earthy tones. In the core of the earth diamond and gold grow. Gold veins run through layers of rock, and which among the precious metals are stainless and dense but soft. Pure diamonds only can develop under the right balance of pressure, when this fails the diamond will be full of imperfections. These are some examples which for me resemble as metaphors how a process, stage of life, or personality can develop.
