Monaco artist, Fiona Ai Bubble creates mixed media artwork aimed at Self Transformation. Each piece is the crystallization of a fleeting event in a spiritual life. She envisions art as a tool to live a better life, a concept she calls the New Light. It affects both the design and construction of all of her projects, and encapsulates the Ai Bubble creative process.
Ai Bubble artwork features the three great dichotomies: technology and human, science and spirituality, reality and imagination. Fiona Ai Bubble puts the chaos of these dichotomies into order through a philosophical tale, told in a visual symphony. In every project, she emphasizes the cycle of life, often represented by a process of decomposition and reconstruction. In doing so, she exposes the ephemeral nature of human existence. Her artwork implores the viewer to come to a higher consciousness – to begin Self-Transformation. By mixing logic, observation and feelings, Fiona discovers metaphors for the Self Transformation moments in life. Her artwork articulates these intangible moments, like serenity, inner peace or self-confidence.
Fiona said: My methodology is a fresh take on a cubist approach, involving elements of post-expressionism and surrealism. Core to the New Light movement is the notion of turning reality, photographic images or recycled materials, into a re-composition, like puzzle pieces forming an entirely new image.
Fiona uses symbols as a visual language, whether taken from tradition or invented in previous Ai Bubble series. Photography enables her to create imagery that brings to life the Ai Bubble meta-phors on Self-Transformation. Using digital processing in conjunction with drawing and painting, she bridges the organic and technological world, recognizing that these spiritual moments can only happen in the vessel of human existence.
