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 international art exhibition "Phìlo-Poèm" she exhibits three works with clear assonance with the world of surrealism, Pop Art and the European avant-garde. "GIVE THE FLOWERS IN TIME ..." seems to be a representation inspired by an avant-garde vision of the works of Raoul Hausmann. There is a strong contrast between the black background and pastel colors, in stark contrast also with the use of bones, in this case a pelvis bone, which have always played an emblematic role in the history of art. In the work "GIVE THE FLOWERS IN TIME ..." the element of the human body used represents the center of the anatomical space, it is what supports the body, the element that allows the body to move, thanks to the legs. In the history of both ancient and modern art, the use of bones is aimed at representing the volatility of life. The viewer feels dropped into a vortex of contrasting emotions, from anguish to the serenity given by the flowers and soft colors."EXPLORING MY RESILIENCE I" has the skull as its central element, although its position is in the background emerges in the work of art, there is also a heart, a butterfly and a model in a position that can be traced back to a dance step, they fill the work. The skull, in a specific way, represents the brevity of human life, but not only that, the skull would also have an important function as an amulet. In this work we perceive the need to live intensely as an alternative to death, an affirmation of being, of rebirth, of resilience, infact. "THE DAY HIS HEART AND MIND BROKE AT THE SAME TIME II" has the heart as its repetitive element, the organ representing life and passion, par excellence. Bright red, the heart is the symbol of feelings and emotions, positioned above the young man in a position of relaxation or passion, but also sadness, restlessness. LIZE KRÜGER's works tell human emotions, the story of feelings, and lead the viewer to relive them, together with the protagonists of the works.
