Man 2.0 Red
Original painting by Rosemarie Brøgger
Brøgger's meat series is created out of pure intuition and out of an inexplicable call to explore the formal element in itself.
This series is a catalyst of thoughts and emotions, as the motive presents itself as a way to reflect upon morality and mortality.
These pieces have a big impact on people, wherever they are exhibited. The iconography of a piece of meat generates strong emotions and political, spiritual or philosophical ideas in the viewers, and thereby gives insight into ourselves and the era we are living in.
The ‘Man 2.0’ pieces in this series are unique due to the massive size and the bold colors in the background that have an almost 3D effect when you’re looking at them in real life.
This makes the motive even more absurd and almost surreal.
Copenhagen based artist Rosemarie Brøgger is a graduate from the Graphic Arts College in Denmark. She works in acrylic paintings on canvas and in digital art printmaking.
Brøgger’s work has themes of transcendence, spirituality, existence, materiality and phenomena. She explores earthly objects and surreal supernatural objects in a simplistic dreamlike yet powerful imagery.
The motives often have the character of being material or composed of matter.
She presents a complex understanding and respect for the elements surrounding us. She has a way of portraying an object that makes it absurd in spite of its actual existence.
The use of dimensions, symmetry and the space within, between, and around objects recurs in her imagery.
Her pieces have a sense of relevance or significance to the now, and she often uses iconography as an examination of our current state of mind. The pieces are in themselves a study of the communication between the artwork and the viewer of a given society, dependent on cultural context.
