Fides Linien - Fine Artist

 

My artistic work focuses on our conceptions of 'female' and 'feminine' aesthetics, both natural and artificially created. For me, featuring women means giving women a voice.

I‘m especially interested in the female body as a projection of desires but also as mother, as life–giving individual, character and standards. Different female roles and varied appearance spectrums inspire my artwork.

 

In most of my colored graphic works, but also in the paper artworks in particular, I‘m concerned with fashion and design, implementation and concealment, the covering and decoration of the body; all these ideas are associated with identity and gender issues and constructs, as well as the sociocultural development of women in society.

 

Fides Linien - Muse

 

In consulting sessions, workshops or seminars I train and mentor in the fields of Art and Aesthetics, Fashion, (Self–) Marketing, socio–cultural matters, as well as interdisciplinary projects. 

I see myself as modern Muse: inspiring and motivating especially women and the next generation–encouraging them in their positive mindset, personal growth and fortitude. 

I believe in progress through creativity, multidisciplinarity, innovation, independence and sustainability. Mindfulness, open–mindedness, versatile interests and authenticity are key elements of my personality.
