The Wrestlers (NFT dropping in Sep on the Flow Blockchain)
This NFT is a .gif. 5 copies will be minted in total. More info very soon about this.
This collection is an ongoing bonding curved trading cards series. 100 1/1 unique works will be minted in total.
The images depict a sculptural idea created in antiquity, developed through a painful human experience, yet born in the meta verse as women where it will live into eternity.
This series explores smooth monochromatic crops of a sculpture of two wrestling women. In another time or very much elsewhere there was a sculpture. It was made by a woman so therefore it depicts women. Its main intend is to ask you to look inwards and learn to lean into love.
Frozen in time, these women represent hormones fighting within the human body. Oxytocin and adrenaline.
For women, oxytocin (the love hormone) is released during hugs, sex, and especially after childbirth. The opposing hormone could be adrenaline - the intense fight or flight hormone, released with intention to save us in a stressful situation.
The sculpture wants to tell you, that opposing hormones cannot be present in the human bloodstream at the same time. It is one or the other. It is an unbroken battle. One has to win. In your life, which one do you feed? Which one do you let control your reality?
The creator’s personal struggles with this – and therefore aim with this work – is to view the scenario of this fight from all possible angles, in order to learn the game of the bloodstream. Hopefully these images become tokens for life-changing behaviour-shifts for many individuals. Keep these images in your phone. Keep this token close to you. Let your awareness of this battle change your blood, so that your blood works for you and not against you.
This collection is ongoing. 20 1/1 unique works will be minted in total.
Inspired by the sentiment of Renaissance painter Fra Angelico, and specifically the drawings by same-era-architect Hans Vredeman de Vries, I have created the scene for the epitomes Oxytocin and Adrenaline.
This series holds several colour concepts exploring the scene of these wrestlers in this exterior scene - seen from different angles.
Apart from my trading card series (The Prudent Crops), this digital painting was created in the vein of my analog representational canvases. Therefore the primary collector of this digital painting will receive a physical giclée print on 50 x 50 cm Hahnemühle Albrecht Dürer 210 gsm paper. This gift is separate from the NFT at the secondary sale and belongs to the primary collector forever. Both print and TIFF explore a dreamy rendering with soft lines and edges. Any collector of 3 random pieces from The Prudent Crop Series (OpenSea) can swap the 3 pieces for 1 piece from this new collection. E-mail for trade guide.
