New Blood Art Statement

There were rose tinted glasses and now we have Leopoldine Roux’s rainbow coloured spectacles, re-creating a previously grey world in glorious technicolour. Roux isn’t just an artist, she is an agent forging postcard-sized windows into a world of daydreams and whimsy. Using greyscale vintage postcards as her canvas, Roux applies vivid lacquer colours to change the dynamic of the original scene and make it wholly more theatrical. Most importantly, Leopoldine Roux seems to harbour a wonderful playfulness and sense of humour...

 

Artist Statement

I want to work around the idea that abstract painting has its own way of being physical. The minimalist statement What you see is all there is - gives the possibility to explore relations and tensions between forms, colours, time and space without referring to images. Sometimes I just let it go and I am happy with new colors, materiality and temporality. What I really want is to conceal the surface, to break down the status quo, to find a sensitive way to explore abstraction and to discover new ways of painting.
