    Happy

    collage

    'My name is Vladislav, my nickname is Happy. I live in Ukraine. But I really like the brightness of Asia. I try to show this in my work, it is a mixture of abstract art, pop culture, collage, fashion, new technologies, all this gives the world that is depicted. Japanese hieroglyphs basically do not carry workloads, they are auxiliary symbols and often, there it is written, a cafe, meditation, love, etc. I studied the director of animation films, and I always drew.'

    The conceptual series of photographs Sea in me revolves around notions of self-reflection, mortality, and migration. Sea in Me is author’s personal response to migrations (by sea), which she compares with her own everyday life, with emotions and feelings of being lost, anxiety and hope(lessness). By using the symbolic imagery of sea, dead sea creatures, and withered plants, the artist explores connections between life, searching for the meaning of life and death, with the intention to create a unique language of symbolism that asks for reflection, what becomes our individual and what collective memory.

    photography

    Éric Bourret's work as an 'artist-walker' participates in the tradition of Land Art and land surveying photography.

    During his walks, which last a few days to several months, the artist superimposes different views of the same landscape on a single negative according to a precise conceptual protocol that stipulates the number of shots and the interval between them. These sequences intensify and accelerate the imperceptible movement of geological strata and freeze the ephemeral temporality of human beings. The accident and the unexpected are integral to this concept of random photographic shots. This photographic ephemeris breaks down the structure of the initial image and creates a different sensitive, shifting reality. The image born of this “temporal layering” is vibrant, oscillating, practically animated.

    Éric Bourret’s images can be seen as photographic notes in a surveyor’s score. They attest to a subjective experience, as he himself has admitted: “The landscapes that I travel through and that travel through me constitute me. I see the photographic image is a receptacle of forms, energy and meaning”.

    painting

    An appropriated book cover is painted over, not so much defaced as embellished, and then it is scanned and printed at a much-enlarged scale. ‘Tricks and Magic’ is a photograph of an open spread book, one of the pages is obscured by a sequence of coloured squares whereas the opposite page, depicting a blindfolded boy pointing upwards, is left intact. The veiled boy is echoed by the paint that veils the image beneath it. The relationship between the paintings and the particular books used is not specific or conceptual but open and elliptical. But it is the photographic enlargement of the paintings that works to both distance us from the emotively painted book and bring us closer to it through its enlargement. The device is both undone and magnified – as is the emotional intimacy.

    collage

    I work on found vintage images as photos, paper scraps, postcards, vinyl covers and disks. I 'pimp' these objects giving to each one of them a brand new meaning and a more contemporary look.

    As a collector of vintage papers, my fascination for the past helped me to follow up the fine art path and to turn my Academy studies (design and photography), into a personal art project. I also believe that manipulate these images can allow me to travel in time and space, that's why I like to create visual space-time portals over them.

    The work confronts my own struggles with depression by documenting the beauty, darkness, and absurdity of everyday life. The images were made largely in my adopted home of Vermont between 2011-now. They offer a deeply personal interpretation of the Green Mountain State, juxtaposing familiar and picturesque tropes with more surreal, sometimes disquieting, subjects.

    'Pandemonium'

    Pursuing the emotional abstraction of repetition, Pandemonium explores the idea of repetition as a way to connect and indulge alternate states of mind. The editorial focuses on maternal anthropological group development. Among the concepts, Sigmund Freud’s idea of “repetition compulsion” was explored to define common characteristics in our society where unconsciously, we repeat the same actions over and over again without the knowledge that it is being repeated. In a similar analysis some first nation tribes in South America create repetition cycles and repetitive dances to break old patterns, creating a momentary mental obsession over repetition. This ancient technique results in a process of self elevation through chaos.

    painting

    These paintings are made up of scaled-down approximations of real homes that exist on the suburban estates around the town within which I live. The benign uniformity of the architecture found in these well-manicured suburban neighbourhoods engenders an uneasy sense of isolation and conformity.

    Built from ply board, the majority of this work is wall hung, protruding into space, in limbo. Working from photographs taken at night the details of the houses are painted onto the flat surfaces in requisite muted tones. There is no warm glow emitting from the windows. These house shaped paintings are conspicuous by the apparent lack of inhabitants, fuelling confusion and self-doubt, forcing the viewer to question perceived certainties. The presence of absence suggests the drama is occurring ‘off-screen’.

    My work is inspired by The West Coast of Denmark (Vesterhavet), jazz and hip hop, Ghana, buildings in Copenhagen, space and time. I live in Copenhagen. I am 22 years old studying Cultural Studies which contributes to my sources of inspiration and keeps my curisosity alive!

    The best thing about creating and painting is the people you meet and connect with through the mutual love for colors, shapes, texture and sound and visuals.
