Handiedan's artwork, Heptade in Blue, skillfully captures the profound essence of life in all its visible and hidden forms, evoking a vibrant energy that resides at the core. The piece is characterized by a deep blue color palette, reminiscent of the renowned Dutch Delft Blue ceramics, set against a backdrop inspired by the old Dutch Gulden bill.
Heptade in Blue is a captivating fusion of a dynamic digital NFT art piece and a physical mixed media artwork consisting of hand cut layered paper and
augmented reality elements and a chip embedded in the physical artwork.
The artwork serves as a visual representation of the dynamic and ever-changing nature of the universe and culture, spanning across space and time. The fluid and dynamic shapes within the artwork gracefully merge with and emerge from the background, symbolising Handiedan's exploration of feminine energy.
These forms embody the qualities of both the Lover and the Mother, representing notions of liberation and tenderness, as well as strength and vulnerability.
This captivating being, simultaneously mistresses and goddesses, possess a symbolic power that traces back to the ancient archetype of Mother Earth (or Mother Nature), symbolizing the natural cycles of life, encompassing stages of birth, transformation, decay, and rejuvenation.
