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.
In Eva Fidjeland's piece entitled Cat Goddess, the artist is using traditional devices found in art and manipulating them to create authentic, cultural pieces. Notice, for example, how the leopard's head and neck are positioned as if it were posing as a human for a painter's portrait. Putting the leopard in a more human positing, gives audiences the opportunity to see the animal's expression as they would view human expression. Notice the definition the artist gives to the eyes, snout, mouth and cheek areas. Notice how you gain authenticity through the leopard's facial expression.
One of the best ways to create authenticity in art pieces is to capture the essence of what is being recreated. Eva Fidjeland has a masterful ability to appreciate something in the world and capture it's essence through art. The artist uses a direct approach in her art, taking audiences directly to an authentic image that highlights cultural relevance, expressionism, and appreciation for the world and its inhabitants.
