The final print release of 2020, "Blood Moon Light " by Handiedan (Netherlands), is an augmented reality fine art print highlighting the importance of healthy oceans, the life support system of our planet. By protecting and conserving vulnerable marine species and habitats, we, in turn, protect ourselves and the wellbeing of future generations.
"The oceans and its underwater currents are the bloodstreams of our planet, Mother Earth, and are the orchestra conductor of the seasons. The flow of energy and matter between oceans, soil, and atmosphere are feeding, sustaining, and creating life. Like breath and blood as a continuous circulation in constant motion.
In this image, Mother Earth is represented by two strong female figures, facing each other and kissing themselves at the same time. The dark skin of the goddess becomes blue in the moonlight. The dark color represents soil, which holds carbon, the building block of life on our planet.
The Red Coral symbolizes the artery of life. The Artery leads the blood from the heart into the body. Carried by the dark blue goddesses with the golden ratio balance at their feet. In the harmonious ocean stream, the dolphins flow around the face of Mother Earth. Connecting and communicating through energy. The dolphin represents the spirit and the unconsciousness. The Beluga Whale, also called white dolphin or white whale, represents one of the higher spirits.
Everything on Earth is connected and harmoniously in balance. That these species are threatened with extinction can be seen as a powerful sign and warning. The balance is very vulnerable."
The art of Dutch artist Handiedan involves a complex cut and paste mixture of digital and highly detailed sculptural hand-cut collages, complimented by conscientiously collected antique ornamental frames.
Handiedan’s accomplished and refined collage technique allows her for an artistic journey through the past, present, and future. The result is an almost kaleidoscopical visual exploration whose discoveries are sometimes immediately visible and sometimes hidden in plain sight.
