Sketch venom hard
This exclusive work is part of the series Sketch venom. It represents the two steps process of analog and digital sketching. It stars with an analog picture and transforms it with the digital software. In her artistic research she follows steps similar to those of the painters from figuration to abstraction at that time, but Gigga Hug works with the computer and changes the initial image using digital techniques - here too the question remains of when the final state will be reached. Her interest in hidden images behind the original ones and the sequences of changing states.
