Eva Fidjeland´s Art Captures the Human Experience

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 towards 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 healingas 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

I like the slight melancholy mystery of these images. In general, the softened color 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. http://artists2artists.net/photo/liz
