Still Alive

2005

oil on canvas

122 x 147 cm
Painted with the romanticised aura of yesteryear, Cris Brodahl’s Still Alive is an exquisite and bizarre arrangement. Drawing from Surrealism as a departure point for negotiating the human form, Brodahl’s painting is pieced together as a stylised motif, an irrational and dream-like icon. Brodahl’s ‘portrait’ is both seductive and monstrous: fashionable accoutrements of flowers and fur double as sensuous physicality, replicating folds of skin and alluring warmth, accessorised by a disembodied hand and all-seeing eye. Through her delicate assemblage, Brodahl composes a disjointed fetishism, conceiving the rules of attraction as esophoric and cerebral paradigm.

CUT featuring Cris Brodahl
Cris Brodahl's paintings start as an amalgamation of images derived from many different sources and then transcribed onto canvas in a photo realistic style. Figures become cut and distorted making up strange third bodies. Colour is replaced by sepia tones and a sense of place is removed.

Cris Brodahl's paintings describe sharp angles with a glimpse of a face or body part, slightly gothic and executed in monotone.

re-title.com - CUT featuring Cris Brodahl
‘Cut’ brings together four artists that use collage as an integral part of their practice. Rather than acting as a survey of the vast importance of collage over the 20th Century, ‘Cut’ sets out to evoke the spirit of surrealists’ collage, embracing Andre Bretons’ definition of Surrealism as a disruptive “juxtaposition of two more or less disparate realities”.
