It's all about Colour! part#3
In recent years, Luzia Simons has, above all, examined the iconography of flowers and found an artistic position that combines photographic hyperrealism and metaphorical intention. For example, in her work with the motif of the tulip, whose history can be seen as a symbol of cultural transmission, a set displayed by Brazilian modernists mechanism as that of transculturation or cannibalism (Oswald de Andrade). History, migrations and occurrences of the tulip, (geographically, as a currency, commercially ...) as a metaphor for the global economy, for trade and technology, but equally for the respective cultures and their importance. Luzia Simons has a very unique artistic approach. Instead of photographing plants or flowers in a classical way and editing them digitally afterwards, she arranges them compositionally in a special scanner developed by herself. This technique has earned Luzia Simon's singular style the title "Digital Baroque". Scanning the motif surpasses photography in depth and brilliance and the effect of the work gains additional levels compared to conventional digitally processed photographs. In addition, because she drapes the plants in the scanner from the bottom to the top, the composition looks sensationally different, and the perception of the sequence of foreground and background becomes comparable to reverse glass painting.
