It´s interesting to see the aesthetic relationships these new garment pieces have to your digital work. The fluid transitions between saturated, jewel toned colors are appreciated in both color palates. (I don´t see the medium indicated, but they appear to be dyed silk.) I respond to the long cut of this specific piece, as  the trailing lines of the cape appear to echo the formal divisions between warm and cool hues. The asymmetry of the design creates further visual interest, but isn´t jarring or dissonant. The adjacent piece (a blouse) perhaps offers more of an open field for the painterly design. Without the structure of the garment defining symmetrical boundaries, the washes of green and violet pigment offer surprising contrast when they come up against the lighter half.

The Dancer II


Presumably a group of self-portraits, this series of Dancer portraits is equivocally voyeuristic in the soft keyhole shadowing of the pictures edges along with the penchant for embellishing costume. I like the tempered restraint of Dancer II, which presents a darker contrast to the overall blue pattern, and a haloed richness in the saturation of the figure´s hair and sienna background. While there´s a decisiveness in the sideways profile of the head, the delicate curl of golden hair points towards her mouth as if to await declaration.

The Red Lady IV had a decidedly different mood despite small actual changes in the model lightning and attire. Being that the subject isn´t fully transformed, I don´t feel that different characters are being created, but that the viewer is invited into the psychological exploration of facets of an archetype. The direct stare of The Red Lady and elevated position of her face above the viewer´s natural eye-line creates an aura of superiority or rebellious dissent, while the conflicting orange and blue hues aid the instinct of competition. In a more graphic way, the figure is also presented as a Pop diva, haughtily looking down on the viewer in her feathered boa. Provocative in stature, the light source seems to glow from within rather than from an external bright light, and therefore she holds our interest and curiousity.

What makes Swedish artist Eva Fidjeland so unique is her ability to create pieces of art using natural, earthly tones while maintaining a commitment to photography, digital art, and traditional visual art. Eva Fidjeland has the ability to see the elements of the world as they are, including the beauty that is nature and animal life, and recreate them in the form of art that has cultural relevance to audiences across the world. Her cultural pieces would fit seamlessly in any gallery or museum in any part of the world.

Eva Fidjeland´s Art Captures the Human Experience


!czx


When art captures the essence of the human experience, it reveals aspects of humanity under a bright spotlight. The art emphasizes these qualities directly, pointing observers toward images that will challenge our current perspectives of the world. The artist, as the creator of such pieces of art, is responsible for the design and creation of these images; their process is similar to the process of unveiling, in which the artist will seek to bring the observer closer to truths through images.

Eva Fidjeland´s art brings observers closer to the truth of understanding the human process of healing. Fidjeland´s art exists within an extraordinary global context. The world has separated the concept of healing within a dichotomous line. Eastern cultures typically incorporate healing concepts within their aspects of a life holistically, while many western cultures view healing as the mere recovery of illness or injury. Many citizens of the world carry a perception of healing that lays somewhere in between.

Eva Fidjeland´s art emphasizes the human need to challenge these perceptions through captivating mixed media design, color and examination of the human body. Eva Fidjeland´s art asserts the concept of healing is far from esoteric, promoting the idea that healing is a natural, organic part of the human condition that connects us to the world in which we live.

Primary Forms with a Bold Function


090rep I like the slight melancholy mystery of these images. In general, the softened palette and contrast evokes a faded memory, but the primary forms have a bold function.
`Evolution´ employs a primordial form, spiraling up out of the water like a mythic sea creature. I also see the faintly grainy quality and washed out magenta tonality as harkening back to old photographic documentary film, though I´m unsure of the media/process actually employed here. I find the vertical orientation is also unexpected for the surreal landscape, as the weighty spiral form doesn´t appear able to sustain its upward thrust for long, as it curls into itself.

 The piece entitled `Liz´ is an enticing picture as well; some more direct photographic reference to lizards is evident, but there is also a diffused manipulation of the image that muffles direct or overt pictorial representation. The resulting image calls to mind pictographic symbolism from a host of ethnic traditions and artistic eras. In this way, `Liz´ reminds me of a mellowed Florence Putterman painting. So the piece seems less about the natural subject depicted, and more about the state of flux, or evanescent movement.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.

 

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.

 

Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
