Christelle Hug is an Artist & Industrial Designer.
She explores the concept of reality through two styles of art making: detailed graphite drawings and semi abstract paintings depicting an alternate reality created by thought.
Painting the subject matter how it is felt rather than how it is seen, she uses vibrant and bold colours to stimulate the emotions of the observer, exploring the idea that if our emotions create our reality then perhaps a change in emotion will lead to a change in how we experience reality.
The two contrasting styles reflect how things are while presenting an idea of how things could be, opening up the analytical mind to the possibility of creative thinking.
