technique: Digital photograph


Statement:
Combining painting, photography and Digital Art enables me to overcome limits and to reflect the constant changes that come with modern lifestyle.
My art also mirrors the increasing mixing of virtual and real world.
I want to use "mixed worlds" for a constructive, liberating and refreshing effect - to break shackles that strangle our imagination.
Fantasy can be stimulated by smallest and inconspicuous things, if we allow to be child again.
A stone, a shadow, a structure on the floor or an icicle will be the ticket for an exciting journey into our personal fantasy-universe.


Bio / Resumee / Statement:
Dominique Brunzlik, a German artist with Czech, Frisian and Indian roots,– was born in 1963 in Munich, the daughter of a photographer and a model. Her childhood, a mix of different cultural and social worlds, had a strong impact on her creativity.

She lived with her father among fishermen on the Mediterranean Sea and got to know the hard but contented life of these people. Her respect and love of nature and animals grew during this time. Simultaneously, she began her first photographic studies.

After the divorce of her parents, she grew up with her father in Munich. She also, however, travelled a lot with her mother and learned about foreign cultures - and also got to know the world of "High Society," with its heights and depths. In this tense field of different life draughts and behaviour patterns she developed a great interest in psychology and behavioral research. At the same time, she wrote poems and texts, took photos, painted and drew, took music lessons and participated in theatrical performances, commercials and photo sessions.

After high school, she wanted to accept an invitation from an academy of arts, but than decided, at her parents' request, to study art history, and later psychology and speech sciences at the Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich. She financed her study with diverse jobs - doing piecework and working in industrial storage, at the Munich Octoberfest, as an extra at Bavaria Film Studios and as a member of different projects in the Munich creative scene. During these years she took various artistic study abroad trips in Europe (Greece, France, England, Italy and others).

Although she worked for a while afterwards as an artist (in 1983 she had her first exhibitions of watch installations, photographs and pictures in Munich), she decided in 1991 to pursue a business career as her main job. For several years she ran her own agency, using her creativity on text and pictures. At the end of the 90s, she accepted an offer from an IT branch and worked for several years in the area of Internet and Social media Marketing.

In 2008 she received a serious medical diagnosis and in 2009 another private stroke led her to deal intensely with her real passion and artistic calling - so she converted this into a positive impulse for a new art project. In early 2010 the circle shut: painting, photography, laser light experiments and installations combined with computer art to create a common world - to overcome present borders and to reflect the permanent alteration of life: "The only permanent thing is change itself." Dominique Brunzlik created the name and project "Paradiso Figurale" to present her works and new digital technologies to an international public, and has already received diverse honours and acknowledgments for her art.
