Artist Bio: Ariane` Kamps finds a deep sense of fulfillment in figurative pop surrealism. Her most recent works are centered around the interplay between foundational cultural myths and modernity. Humanity’s interaction with modern technology is seen through the lens of primeval archetypes.
The forced introspection that accompanied the first months of the pandemic, leaden as they were with fear and compulsory isolation, created an a wholly new landscape with which to grapple. To process the fears and anxieties of the post-pandemic world into a more digestible format, Kamps’ work interprets them through the lenses of archetype, myth, and dreaming.
