Catalogue for the Coming Out Art Exhibition
Lize Krüger is a digital artist with an incredible artistic experience. The theme of surrealism in the artist's works is constant, the combination of completely different elements makes Lize able to create unique works. At the 'COMING OUT' international art exhibition hosted by the art gallery M.A.D.S. Lize exhibits five works that, in a manner consistent with the artist's artistic production, have a clear assonance with surrealism. "FOLLOW MY SHADOW I" creates oxymorons ranging from the use of light to the subjects represented, the deer skull and flowers are illuminated and this creates an incredible contrast with the shadows of children, both from symbolic and a visual point of view, "SEARCHING FOR ANGELS II" is placed on the same communicative style, brighter than the first, but rich in ocymorons and contrast. "I'LL MEET YOU THERE...SOMEWHERE I" provides a sense of absence in presence, the face has no features, that is, it brings to mind works such as "Il Trovatore" by De Chirico and a famous sketch by Matisse representing a face, both works that deny the identity of the subject. In this way identity is denied, the presence of the mirror recalls, instead, the work "La reproduction interdite" by Rene Magritte. The absence of the face and the lack of a correct reflection in the mirror makes the work disturbing, disquiet made more accentuated by the veil placed above the elements. "PRIME VICTIM III" combines elements of classical iconography through the representation of the Madonna with the child, with extremely contemporary graphic elements, creating an image completely detached from any historically defined artistic current. "TRANSPARENCY" presents a triptych of busts surmounted by a bouquet of flowers instead of the face. Also in this case classical elements are combined with more modern elements, the represented busts recall the Venus de Milo according to the posture. LIZE KRÜGER's works create parallel realities in which the observer's mind can be inspired and in which he can travel in search of his own truth and interpretation.
