Artist Vivian Greven‘s point of departure for her solo show a m o r e and the new works exhibited is the myth of Armor and Psyche. The story is centred on the topics of knowledge and visualization, also recurring in Greven’s artistic research.
In her paintings, she seeks to reproduce the functioning of the digital images spread in the Internet era, characterized by idealization and smoothness, pursued through an excess of design and manipulation. Vivian Greven´s art becomes a reflection of this postmodern subject-perception in the digital age, in which apparently perfect images raise the question of what really lies behind them. In the same way, the painted surface in Vivian Greven’s works is immaculate only at first glance, while they hide fine scars and cracks and in a relief even knife-like cuts.
