About Me

Gia Strauss

'We have art so we don't die of truth' 

(Friedrich Nietzsche).

 

Emotions speaks another language, expression of emotions are understood in all languages. From political statements to personal interpretations. I speak with my art, I see with my heart and feel with my mind. I communicate through my heart, through my desires, through my dreams in a world where there are no rules. I am me. I am a modern Surrealist, I express through reality, to create a sur-reality. 

Transcending the tedium of every day life, the authenticity of great works of art should command reaction. It should never be mundane and should always be thought provoking. My artistic aims are to convey visually and with great sensitivity the concerns of life today. 

Surrealism is the epitome of an artist's imagination,“They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn’t. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.” (Frida Kahlo).

For me Surrealism is the intoxication of the unconscious mind. 

 The nature of my work has sometimes been described as 'Illuministic', the gender of illusionism. It is perhaps an appropriate label in that the consummate objective of my work is to illuminate the important issues of today through the spectrum of a creative view point and an evocative perspective of our times - an indelible portrayal of life during the second decade of the twenty - first century. 

I portray different facets of myself in my films and paintings.

My artistic ability predominantly resides with films, art performance, paintings and piano compositions.

 

At present I am a PhD student of Philosophy (Surrealism, time and moving image). I have completed my BA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths (2017) and an MRes in Moving Image at Central Saint Martins (2019).
