All art, pictures, photos, models by Sandy Viktor Nys © SABAM2008 All models cleared by contract. An Introduction to the work of Sandy Viktor Nys, Aka ReCyDeSign. Dark images from a paganistic past.The viewer gets submerged in a hyperrealistic world . The nightmares from one person can be the sweet wishfull dreams of another.Women, naked, painted, decorated, besmeared, in bondage, rubber or leather, they look/glance not ashamed in the lens from the camera, or languished turn away their looks, to the other side.The models are the witches of our times, they look and decide themselves how they will appear in front of the camera. The artist is nothing but the translator, the interpretator, the chronicler. The female forces from the paganistic culture are central in the work.The themes are dark and disquieting. They are full of contradictions, decay, decline and beauty,chaos and creation, pain and pleasure. One needs contradictions to compare , to weigh. You can only know and understand beauty if you also know uggliness. The present male monothe?stic culture gets confrontated with its female counterpart, out of a far past: Paganism, the culture where fertility, women, magic and dreams are centralized.The woman becomes an archetype; de seducer, the demon, the girl, the whore, the slave, the mistress,the priest, the mother… She steps across the fashion-icon she must be in this present time.Her naked body restores the balance between male and female forces.Everything she is standing for in this contemporary culture she will destroy and accentuate. Some viewers will find it shocking and confusing, others will find it fascinating.On the paper, the centuries old contradictions become truth.
