I was reading a Times Fashion magazine and came across this incredible artist, Nathalie Djurberg. I hesitated adding her to my collection of inspiration because she’s a little out of the realm of what I’m working on—but she does relate as far as stop motion, which yes, I do plan on working with on my paper art.
Her twisted art is disturbing yet somehow still attractive. The characters are crudely made but really work with her usual subject matter, which are often chilling. Some videos touch subjects of rape, mutilation, death, destruction—all things that she feels she must create but cannot talk about. Watching the videos, I can’t help but feel she has some demons, yet the worlds she creates are incredibly cinematic and have beautiful production value. Something I hope to achieve along the way.
