Rise of the Cosmic Fire Tour | Exhibition

Some of my original artworks (as well as some merch of course, including some handcrafted antler’s wheels and handpainted shirts) will be on tour with the “Rise of the Cosmic Fire” Tour with Naglfar, Schamasch & Anomalie, starting in three days in Prague. Sadly I will not be on the road with my work this time. I planned to attend at least the gig in my old hometown Hamburg, but for personal reasons this will also be impossible for me.

Submission

“Submission” is my largest piece to date and measures 122 x 99cm (including frame).

This piece is probably the one that received the most attention from the audience over the years and raised the most questions. The original was only exhibited twice, the artprint version much more often and even made it to the USA. You can find some thoughts about “Submission”  as well in last year’s printed edition of Pfingstgeflüster (in German language), the author quite obviously visited the exhibition in Leipzig during Wave Gotik Treffen 2017. The original is NOT FOR SALE, it is only possible to buy a limited edition print (only 23 available).

I will for sure not explain the image itself to you, hell no, but answer the constant question of how it was done technically. This work is an overpainted collage, based on my own photographs. The original photographs also appeared as black & white images in my book release “Sintra” in 2005, which is long out of print. The photographs were cut apart and re-assembled to something completely new and then overpainted in a complete layer. The overpaint consists of acrylic paint and some blood. Yes, it’s my own blood. You can see some details in the images below. The frame is an antique original, dating back to around 1900.

Exhibition “Mirrors” | Interview

My works will participate in the Reflective Dimensions Tour with Agrypnie, Totalselfhatred, Arroganz & Aspagor, organized by Quantheon Touring in October 2018. For this occasion you can also find a very recent interview with me on the Quantheon homepage, following this link or click on the image below.

Tourdates: Erfurt (16.10.), Vienna (17.10.), Innsbruck (18.10.), Stuttgart (19.10) and Olten, Switzerland (20.10.).

“With her exclusive exhibition ”MIRRORS’ exceptional artist LAETITIA MANTIS will invite you into another world. Your own. This assemblage of her works will make you look into the black mirror of your soul, will reflect your own self. Her art is known to speak for itself, to open a door to an inner world not made for words but to be experienced, seen, and felt. Hence, more words are futile. Come along, and open the door if you dare. Experience for your-self.”
