Maize Arendsee, Graduate in Humanities
This exhibit is a transdigital exploration of metamorphoses, multivalency, and anachronism. The images themselves evoke mythic moments of transcendence and transmutation. Beginning with digital art and painting techniques, these canvases evolve towards traditional art mediums and techniques; MANDEM's workflow moves jaggedly between computer and canvas, layering physical media over digital grounds or converting paints into digital textures and backgrounds. The result is work that transcends genre lines both in content and in technique.
MANDEM's work has been widely published as album covers and book illustrations, as well as being featured in literary journals, art magazines, and dozens of art shows & exhibits. (It can also be found online at www.MythpunkArt.com)
