Selfie Artwork by Brigitte Polemis

Brigitte Polemis

1966


Syria

Brigitte's work is caught between the disciplines of photography, printing, design and sculpture. Her work is defined by her minimal aesthetics of colour, line and form. Herchoice of Perspex as her media, the use of technologies and her attention to high production values, gives her artwork a very contemporary feel. in addition, the use of the multiple motif and lined backgrounds ads elements of surreal, optical and pop art, that in her work find a new unique expression.

Brigitte Polemis is represented by Mamush Gallery from June 2016.

In her new series of work, she questions issues of conformity and standardization as the effects of industrialisation are becoming evident in every aspect of our lives. The use of the faceless male figurine in mupltiples conveys the objectification of the individual and the senseless reproduction reflecting our consumer society. The subtle use of colour serves as traces of hope amongst the grays and blacks that represent sentiments of desperation.

The spaced out multiple layers of Perspex, become the vehicles for a simultaneous background, middle ground and foreground, which enable her to switch back and forth with reality and illution. The lined backgrounds create optical illutions as the viewer moves closer, further of along the images. Her theatrical wheel compositions, reminiscent of scenes in romantic films of the 60's, in which human formations would create moving shapes of opening and closing flowers, are full of movement as if they are the documentation of a meticulously staged performance that took place elsewhere.
