Gerburg Garmann 🖼️
As a painter, I have become more and more interested in the digitized modulations of my own work because each variation allows for a new perspective and take on the artwork. Snow Notes is perhaps a good example of that: the original piece bears some Renaissance tones (both in terms of the subject matter and the rendering of the female figure). Though allusions to the original topic remain in the digitized variation, the change of context / environment (in this case a snowy background which has literally touched the face of the figure) allows for new ways of reading the original. The formerly self-assured figure has turned (partially) pale. Does this mean that she feels weakened or is she braving the cold and is in it (whatever this “in it” might mean) for the long run? The answer remains a mystery which might be exactly the reason why the viewer feels drawn in.
