"The original hand cut collage artwork ‘Atrium’ was part of Corey Helford Gallery’s ’10 Year Anniversary Show’ in August.
The large open air space holds the lights and energy, enclosed by roofs of glass and ornamental columns. The skull, symbol of death, life and rebirth.
Surrounded by female figures. Guards, guardian angles or nymphs.." - Handiedan
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
n‘s artistic universe revolves around some leading visual motifs and yet it amazes thanks to its complexity, both in terms of formal composition and in terms of the technique she uses for making them. These two aspects together determine the irresistible charm of her art.
Undisputed protagonists of Handiedan‘s sculptural hand-cut collages, her vintage pin-ups immediately recall the burlesque genre. However if we look into them further many sources of inspiration are revealed: the Neo-Classical and Victorian ages, the Parisian Belle Époque, up to the 1940’s and Post-War sexy imagery. But none of Handiedan‘s ‘models’ really existed. In fact each of them is composed through by assembling anatomical parts of different pre-existing images. The newly formed woman is the result of a complex layering process that gives to Handiedan‘s art a three-dimensional quality and makes a collaged bas-relief out of every work. Her cheerfully sexy creatures seem to lively bend in and out of their background.
