EMILY LOVEJOY

METAIRIE, LOUISIANA

Emily Lovejoy is contemporary portraiture painter. Her work has modern photographs juxtaposed on top of her subjects, faintly hinting at the signs of the times and how these images have an affect on identity, as well as on how others see us compared to how we see ourselves. Her vibrant use of color gives her work an unexpected surrealistic twist. Lovejoy currently lives and works in New Orleans, La.

 

PUT YOUR THING DOWN FLIP IT AND REVERSE IT

ACRYLIC ON CANVAS, 24 IN. X 24 IN., 2015

Portrait of Blake Boyd projected on my breasts. Contemporary portraiture with a surreal twist created through a process of thinly layering down slow drying acrylics in a seemingly erratic manner, yet each stroke is intentional. 

The contrast between the real and surreal is confronted through a lens of bold imagery or colors used to portray the subjects. With “Introspection” I explore what drives myself and others, and what makes each person unique.
