Symmetry part I&II Drawing by Daan Noppen

Home > Winners > #47109


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Symmetry part I&II

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Drawing

INSPIRATION:
The portraits in the works are from two men whom have known each other for almost all their lives. They are however in many ways opposites, both in visual appearance and in their character. One could say they represent an opposite symmetry. Concepts like these are very common in solid state physics, the study of rigid matter, or solids, through methods such as quantum mechanics, crystallography, electromagnetism, and metallurgy. Physics and it’s relation to our being, our emotions, plays a big part in the work of the artist. Rather than becoming something ‘scientific’ this opens up a visual world of our hidden layers of our desires, our pain and our cry for being loved. For this piece the artist studied patterns of the Fibonacci crystal or quasicrystal and used parts of this pattern in the drawing to juxtapose the characters of the two men. The pattern binds them in symmetry.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The work is a drawing diptych, it consists of 2 parts: Symmetry I and Symmetry II. Both works are coloured pencil drawings on Arches 300grms paper 114cm x 114 cm in size.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The work should be hung with the two parts next to each other separated by a few centimeters. Symmetry I should be placed on the left side and Symmetry II on the right side.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The work was produced in Amsterdam starting in december 2014. The process took over 3 months, it was exhibited at the Compagnie Theater in april 2015

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Graphics and Visual Communication Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Coloured pencil drawing on paper. The works are framed

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Drawing: 114x114 cm Framed drawing: 120 x120 x 4 cm Please note: The work contains two of the above

TAGS:
Drawing, Diptych, Pencil, Art, Daannoppen, newcomtemporary, realism, physics, geometry

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
An important aspect of the work of Daan Noppen is it's relation to physics. For this piece the artist studied pattern of the Fibonacci crystal or quasicrystal which is a model used to study systems with aperiodic structure which find a base in the physic's field solid state physics. See 'inspiration�39; above for Two-dimensional aperiodic tiling based on the Fibonacci word

CHALLENGE:
When one draws or paints a portrait of a face that is larger than life size the brain seems to loose track of size and proportion. The artist has to find ways to overcome this distortion and maintain the essence of the character.

NAME:
Daan Noppen

PROFILE:
Daan Noppen is an international artist mainly working in drawing and photography. He is best known for his realistic larger than life drawings of portraits and bodies. Physics and it’s relation to our being, our emotions, plays a big part in his work. The artist plays with notions of reality by projecting time as a physical dimension. Rather than becoming something ‘scientific’ this opens up a visual world of our hidden layers of our desires, our pain and our cry for being loved. 'Amsterdam based artist Daan Noppen brings a special dynamism to his pencil drawings of still life and portraits. His works are not only eye-catching for their precise layering of details, but also in their massive size that gives his subjects a more palpable presence. A closer look at each piece reveals mathematical equations in between the pencil lines that relate to our reality. More recent works express the artist’s continued fascination with mathematics, geometry, and physics, as his figures appear to be gauged, dissipate, and intermingle in a void of empty vector space'. Hi-fructose magazine march 2016 Daan Noppen's work has been exhibited in New York(USA), Mexico DF(Mexico), Shanghai(China), Metz(France), Luxembourg(Luxembourg), Belgium, The Netherlands.
