Reflected in You | 24” x 30” | oil on linen

"The central theme that unites all my paintings examines how seemingly separate and isolated life experiences actually disguise the extent of our individual and communal bonds. The ‘masks’ and the accompanying identities we all assume depending on the life role we must play, obstructs the conscious mind from acknowledging what truly unites us through the isolation and chaos: our shared encounters of pain, loss, desire, and longing for serenity and acceptance. The false facades we all manufacture to adapt and belong also renders most blind and lost in a world where the meaningless has somehow become meaningful and the idea of a shared honest self devoid of hidden agendas all too infrequent.

I focus on combining traditional oil painting techniques with surrealist symbolism to explore the presumably dystopian landscape of emotional and physical scars carried all too often amongst the female characters. However, the subject of my paintings refuse to fall into victimhood or self-loathing; instead, the women that often preoccupy my paintings figuratively and literally wear their wounds with resounding pride and empowerment. The mistakes of their pasts, the festering wounds of pain and loss, and the hauntingly icy stabs of betrayal, none of these spectres weigh them down or define their destinies.” — Alexandra Manukyan

Sewing Dreams and Fate - A Poster

image

Inspired by a poem:

"Embroidering my fate with velvet and some moonlight, I hunt stars across the sea as the sun waves me goodbye. Little by little I see perfection awakening my sleepy soul, Sewing dreams and beauty together, hemming my sigh.” — Karla Bardanza

In the Woods

image

"Visual identity for In The Woods Festival, a one-day music festival held at a woodland location in the UK every summer, aimed at promoting up-and-coming artists and bands from Britain. The exact lineup and venue of the event is kept secret and released to the public only on the day of the event.

Started out as a hypothetical rebranding project done as part of CSM BA Graphic Design coursework, but artwork ended up being utilised for the actual event publicity. Featured photographs and video are from the official In The Woods Festival website.”

Love Me, Possess Me

image

"If paper bags could talk, what would they say? ‘Love Me, Possess Me’ is a statement on commercialism and the attraction that commercial graphic design exerts on modern society, where the key goal is to allure, and to seduce."

Title: Mamout 
Dimensions: 60x80cm

S†ella is a young Parisian artist, born in 1989 in Yvelines. She studied graphic design at Troyes before embarking on a freelance career and is now working on many projects with 83a studio, specializing in video-projected imager…The works of S†ella feed the huge zoological diversity and question the living through the prism of anthropomorphism. Animals are guinea pigs for her which she methodically dissects materials, and body movements…her works are related to medical illustration, anatomical portraits, made with care, humor and precision.”
