Dlela Lombard is a german visionary photo and digital artist/painter who works across a multitude of mediums, acrylic,ink and color pens, Photoshop (22 years without AI , collage, photography among other materials. Approaching the new medium with a scientific mind Lombard's process of digital transformation is a discovery and taking formless photo pixel content further into new forms exploring divinity within her work: making the invisible visible - digitally speaking being able to create out of nothing akin to a blank canvas about which she feels that color and form have their own soul. Making the invisible visible has its roots also in black & white photographic development especially as the art of seeing in a dark room and making the latent or invisible visible.It was only through photography that making unconscious conscious was evolving in my early years.The camera lens was then like an extension of the spiritual eye.Then one can see ones own mud conditions better and eventually continue as an alchemist transforming.Moreover, in 2023 influenced by surrealism which is chance operation, text-image is another extension into new forms; own vision and vocabulary, own sense of space, color,form and was building up originally with a painter name who does not exist which is surrealism per se; keeping myself up to date simply by doing and undoing.The Universe enjoys the play of form and one can be a medium for it.Through work in a flow I could transcend and get deeper not only into pixels but also into my source of creativity and being.
