聚焦艺术家,Loribelle Spirovski,澳大利亚

澳大利亚视觉艺术家Loribelle Spirovski以绘画为媒介,围绕肖像画创作艺术作品。色彩和空间的主题强烈地反映了她作品的本质,其特点是摄影现实主义、波普艺术和超现实主义的对比元素。
斯皮罗夫斯基的母亲是菲律宾人,父亲是南斯拉夫人,很小的时候就搬到了澳大利亚。艺术一直是一种逃避现实的机制,是一种处理搬家对她产生的深远影响的方法。这种感觉体现在她的绘画中;每个人都表现出一种忧郁和另类的感觉。“在过去的几年里,我发现自己越来越被一个空间的张力所吸引——他们需要填满这个空间,需要理解它奇怪的感觉。她继续说道:“作为一个移民的孩子和我自己的移民,我对太空的执着是特别有意义的。”她承认,她用绘画来发现自己置身于一只野鸭的空间中——无论是通过一个她遇到的人的画像,还是一个她只是想象出来的人的画像。“这些间接的自画像浓缩了我作为一个年轻女性的身份,以及我所有的关注、痴迷和焦虑。”她的作品可以分为两类,都考察了人类状况的表层和深层。“浅色”绘画中人物和风景的色彩都很鲜艳,而“深色”绘画中人物的色彩则更为阴郁。

Australian visual artist Loribelle Spirovskiuses paint as her medium to create artworks centering around portraiture. Themes of color and space strongly inform the nature of her work, which is characterized by the contrasting elements of photorealism, pop art, and surrealism.
Spirovski is born to a Filipino mother and Yugoslav father and moved to Australia at a young age. Art had always been a mechanism for escapism, and a way to process the profound effect that moving countries had on her. This feeling is translated into her paintings; each displays a feeling of melancholy and otherness. “Over the past few years, I have found that I have become more and more drawn to the tension of a space – they need to fill it, the need to understand its strange sentience. As a child of immigrants and an immigrant myself”, she continues, “My fixation on space is a particularly meaningful one”. She admits she uses painting to find herself within the space of a canvas—whether through the portrait of a person she’s encountered, or the portrait of someone she’s only imagined. “These indirect self-portraits are distillations of my identity as a young woman, with all of my fixations, obsessions and anxieties”. Her body of work can be split into two categories, both of which examine the superficial layers and hidden depths of the human condition. ‘Light’ paintings with vibrant colors of both figures and landscapes, and ‘dark’ paintings that utilize a more somber palette to depict figures.
