mieke teelen Artist Bio:

Analysing and modifying photographic material by painting and drawing, digitally or manually. I use both my own photographs and found footage most of the time as a platform to create new intriguing images which clearly reflect my painting background. I'm romantic and optimistic. Always want to improve the world and trying to catch the sublime around me. I believe in progression and the contribution from arts and sciences to progression. I'm always struggling with the balance between the emotional and the rational. I studied art and economics. Economics is basically about how humans are dealing with the world around them. Trying to understand the world by finding structures and simplifying it in models in order to deal with the chaos we're living in. As an artist I'm also trying to understand the world by doing the same, structuring and simplifying the world. My work is conceptual and sometimes engaged. I pair the use of advanced digital technics with traditional painting, drawing and collage technics. The main subjects in my work are nature and landscapes. For me, landscapes are the embodiment of the sublime and the human. Landscapes characterize our time with strong connections to the past and the future; they give structure to the world.
