Iridescent Catharsis

This week I bring you “Iridescent Catharsis” Animated Art Video.

Iridiscence: /ĭr′ĭ-dĕs′əns/, adj.
1. the state or condition of being colored like a rainbow or like the light shining through a prism.
Catharsis: /kəˈθɑːsɪs/, noun
1. the process of releasing, and thereby providing relief from, strong or repressed emotions: “music is a means of catharsis for them”.

“Psychoclimatic conditions” is a series where I establish a parallelism between weather phenomena and psychological definitions, conditions and illnesses. To do so, I have been studying for over a year meteorology and psychology to create these visual metaphors.

For the aesthetics of the series, I wanted to focus it in portraits with as-much-as-possible neutral expressions from the model so I could depict the feeling using color, composition and texture. It would be too easy to rely the emotion of the final artwork to fall just in human expression. I wanted to explore how to generate sensations using other ways. For that reason, it organically took a more abstract outcome. I was also a bit tired on working on realism only and I wanted to bring back some aesthetics I used to work on when I was younger and was experimenting with traditional medias, mixing different painting styles. It’s something I had been craving to do for years and I considered this was the perfect project to bring them back.
