Therefore, their works bear no title, but leave that up to the Act of artistic creation, the structures of this extraordinary imagery dictate unformed fantasies. The works of Nils of farthing are outfitted with their penchant for the Figurativeness: sometimes bizarre is his choice of subject: portraits of invertebrates that are almost obsessive attention to detail, there are. So the viewer in the work Tigerschnegel met”the fotohaften image of a mollusk (Tigerschnegel”, 60 x 140 cm, oil on canvas, 2009). This selection of seemingly insignificant details by the artist, which corresponds to a semantic superelevation of the subject, stresses that deceptive moment of human values: on the edge of social consciousness repressed details or living in the center of attention return, from which she bluntly staring at the viewer and pointing to the fragility of traditional value systems and social consensus.
