The Essence of Ballet

Ingrid Bugge, A Danish visual artist, takes you in with her rare shots of body and nature :

“The human body, movement and the personal, subjective story are my artistic passions. I mirror what I see and thus I must feel and understand before creating my own interpretations. In my art projects, I always start by examining the subject – the scientific subject as well as the subjective and personal subject. I collect motifs and textures with my camera. In Photoshop I work with different colour schemes and play with textures and motifs creating my own visual universe in my photographic collages,” she says.

Ingrid Bugge’s artistic practice aims to examine the world and its essentials. She looks at the immediate and superficial and then goes beyond, in search of the inherent story and poetry. By editing the photographs with digital tools, she approaches them as digital paintings, using light, texture, materiality, space, movement and form in order to reveal the essence of her chosen subject.

This exploration of the world happens through the lens of her camera, out to digital edition, and on a beautiful canvas, cotton paper, or poster print.
