|Sibylle Ruppert's "Au-delà des lames"(1981)|
What Giger's Biomechanic Landscape would inspire
In 1981, Sibylle Ruppert would paint "Au-delà des lames" incorporating imagery from HR Giger's Biomechanic Landscape I, turning the strange bauble like forms into glass baubles at the end of the knee stumps of an man holding a scimitar who appears to have lost his lower legs. The scimiter in this case may well have been borrowed from the upper bauble in Giger's painting. And the shape of the lower lip of the bottom of the gutter pipe like structure coming out of the wall into transforming into an open maw at the bottom of a hanging inverted body that appears to have just been beheaded.
