We became aware of Bettina’s work way before she applied for a residency at Lick Studio. Her clothing label Nem! Clothing caught our eye because of her nifty tie-dye work, and then we started to notice all the other things she does – her photography and videos are particularly impressive.
Bettina studied at the Moholy – Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest before coming to Brighton to continue her creative paths in a different environment. Now she’s in the Lick studio until the end of June, and as always there’ll be a final show exhibition where Bettina will be showing off her work.
Bettina sent us a description of what she does, here’s what she said:
My work is themed around emotions and time and their relationship to each other.
These pieces are studies of memories, feelings and human relationships – visualisations of the incomprehensibility and elusiveness of all the above.
How do we experience our relationships? How do we perceive our space and surroundings? What do we really feel and how do we act on it? How do we feel about death and how does it effect our life? My observance is just a piece of phantom reality.
The work is a symbolic, visual combination of science, psychology and illustration – an attempt to reminisce by picturing feelings.
Illustration, general, colourful and levitating.
