'The uniqueness of Menega Sabidussi's work lies in her artistic diversity while retaining a consistent level of taste and quality. Her perceptive eye and creative instincts allow her to 'see' in many different styles and, paired with technical proficiency, to employ a broad range of stylistic expressions to create her visions.'
My name is Menega Sabidussi, digital artist, photographer, designer, astrologer (don't let that one bother you), traveller and animal lover. Austrian. Born in New Orleans, USA, I have lived in Canada and several places in Europe and am now based in Vienna, Austria.
What I convey in my work are my inner visions of memories. I am an intensely visual person and have been storing memories and thoughts visually and in different art styles since I can remember (having been exposed to alot of art as a child). So, depending on the experience and scene, I will remember a picture of the atmosphere and emotional impression in, say, black and white and minimalistically, others in wild impressionistic color or even in traditional drawing and painting styles and others in graphic lines, shapes and photographic abstracts. I love to experiment with techniques, to 'do what it takes' to bring my images to that inner point and also to 'play' with light and shadows and color.
Digital art paintings, trees and forests, landscapes and moods, nature and travel photography, animals, especially strays and street cats and dogs, as well as symbology and mythology, fractal illustrations and abstracts, patterns and shapes, and different architectural styles, modern and historical, all cover the themes I am interested in pursuing.
Finding and exploring order and meaning in nature and our daily environment also fascinates me. I call this “found symbology”. Patterns, textures, lines, shapes, light all combine to form not just beautiful or visually compelling photographic images but offer a rich field for discovering visual symbology with emotional and/or philosophical content. In my work as a digital abstract artist I have been exploring the field of symbology further. Fractals are an inherent part of nature, they are all around us, just waiting to be discovered. By working within the chaos patterns of nature itself, I have been able to find more and more layers of meaning, concepts and stories emerge, creating what I call “Fractal Concept Abstracts” and “Fractal Illustrations”.
