Laura Krifka – BOOOOOOOM! – CREATE * INSPIRE * COMMUNITY * ART * DESIGN * MUSIC * FILM * PHOTO * PROJECTS

As a result of intimate and carefully constructed figurative paintings, San Luis Obispo, California-centered artist Laura Krifka (previously featured listed here) dissects the mechanisms of energy, id, and observation observed in visual tradition. With non-descript references to the history of painting, Krifka incorporates the modern frameworks of movie and images into her comprehending of portraiture and psychology. By collapsing several sights of the identical pose, matter, house, and time into every portray she produces scenes that appear deceptively easy, but are rife with distortions, puzzles, and physical impossibilities that make visible factuality tenuous and obstacle a viewer’s perceptual abilities.

Krifka directs every complicated narrative as paintings unravel and reform slowly but surely about months and even a long time. Protagonists inhabit domestic areas, at times gazing assertively out of their canvases, other periods disappearing into the wallpaper, but generally vulnerable. Her figures occupy various states of undress, preparation, or perform, expressing an relieve with intimacy and an acknowledgement that the act of searching is a central part of drive. The pleasure of observation is echoed in Krifka’s possess text: “…our pleasures and perversions have been molded by the fictions that permeate our ubiquitous visible lifestyle. That our most mystery dreams are partly formed by our codified, collective ordeals is a supply of endless fascination for me.”
