Temptation of Nature : a study of duality in the pictorial world of Karin Broos (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of   the study has been to examine the duality that I seemed to find in Karin   Broos works, primarily on the basis of her renditions of nature. The   objective is to study the duality on various plans and to examine which   traces of Intertextuality that may exist.

In the study of the duality   I have taken note of how nature is presented in terms of style and form, as   well as that I have seeked cultural references pictorial and symbolic. I have   also examined the images with reference to Intertextuality. 

The following   questions has been applied during the work:  How is nature produced in the paintings?  What place occupies nature in relation to the people, in the works?  What is being communicated by nature's participation in the works?

As a method, and as a   tool for analysis and interpretation of selected works, I have chosen to use   Panofskys iconological interpretative method. As a guide to seek relations of   intertextuality the theories of  Julia   Kristeva has been useful, which  includes thoughts  that new images are created or re-created   in relation to other images all the time and in new contexts.

As a result of the   study I have found some kind of expression of balance, though it did not   seemed to look that way from the beginning. It could be an expression of a   desire for man and nature in harmony, not separated but acting in symbiosis.   Perhaps it is also an expression and a longing for what is natural but not   culture, a hope or a reminder of the fragile relationship between man and   nature, an expression of reflection on the balance and harmony in our culture   and contemporary world. The double has in away been a language to communicate   this issue, to open our eyes in front of it.
