Compliance or Connection

Conformity is the process by which people change their beliefs, attitudes, actions, or perceptions to better match those held by groups to which they belong or want to belong or by groups whose approval they desire. Compliance has significant social implications and continues to be the subject of active research.

The Connection Theory is a combination of the following four premises: 1. Everything a mind is aware of is (a) a sensation, (b) a spatial relationship between sensations, (c) a representation, (d) a hold of awareness of something, or (e) a combination thereof..

Since my immigration to France, I have started my process of self-research and documentation. I wonder from time to time if I pass from approval or from desire. I documented my outer relationships (paintings), my inner emotions (drawings) and my desire for approval (collages) and my need for change (photography).

For me, these works make the link between my past and my undefined future. They work like a visual diary and help me analyze my process. I invite you to discover my universe.

Biography

Hello, I’m Wendy Nouse, a contemporary artist, specializing in social politics. This means that I am very interested in life itself. I research this in science and philosophy and then turn it into visuals. I use paintings, drawings, installations, sculptures, films/photos and performances to materialize my ideas.

I am fascinated by how the conditioned mind works and how people bring about huge changes in society through small actions and ideas. I like to glamorize everyday life and celebrate everyday heroes.

I was born in Maastricht in 1990. I grew up in the Netherlands and did most of my studies there. In 2013, I started at the Academy of Fine Arts in Maastricht and in 2016 I participated in the Erasmus program at ENSBA Paris. I fell in love with France and immigrated in 2017. Since 2021, I have been a resident of Bois–Le–Roi, where I have created an art studio at home.

Since 2020, I have been working as a full-time artist. Due to the health crisis, I started teaching fine arts, created a graphic designer and illustrator firm and opened an online store.

Œuvres

L’homme violet | 2021 | 130x100x2,5cm | Huile, Toile, Ruban, Plâtre – SINGULART

Slowly but surely approaching me. I can see the secret behind every move you make. Her hair, that wet touch, the loving kiss, none of it feels real. Love covered in so much pain. Eat me alive.

A short horse distance from the next person. I find myself alone, lost behind a hidden walled door. While fiercely continue to wear pirate lipstick. Trying to find out who I am alone. I was addicted to distraction, which no longer exists, of course. My only physical friend looks at me in the mirror. Solution, across the border of the country, I crossed twice, I became unstoppable. To think that I can finally stop smiling, just to please others.

I am light, I am colour, but you choose to live in darkness. How do you serve, the manic depressed. It’s selfish to think that you can save the world alone. The hero complex wasn’t mine to begin with. I never wanted to please any of you. I just knew that being myself didn’t make you happy. So I lied, I accepted, I deminished, untill there was just you.

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. I love… I hate… I hate… I hate… I hate… How can you expect positive feedback. The pressure was crazy. Excellence is required, mistakes are unforgivable, I still pay with exhaustion. I have become the best version of your desire. The devil loved nothingness.

Réflection | 2022 | 116x89x2.5cm | Huile, Toile, Plâtre | SINGULART

Reflected fractions of interwoven energies. Love and passion gently caress each other. Repeating a broken self, healing and growing. She is love, he is love, we are love, now what? Spring is setting in, will the flower bloom…?
