Contemporary portraitist and surrealist painter, Loribelle Spirovski, is set to launch her highly anticipated new collection of work, title: Love, Death and The Time I Knew You.  HOFA Gallery will assemble select artwork from her most successful collections, showcasing her prolific talent and remarkable growth as a contemporary artist. 

 Born in the Philippines in 1990, this Australian artist has fascinated audiences at home and abroad with her distinctive style and approach to contemporary portraiture. Though admittedly intuitive, Loribelle's artistic style is also decidedly cerebral, rooted in the myths, music, literature, pop culture and experiences that inspire her and make her art resonate with viewers.                                                                                                

Her journey as a contemporary artist began with realism and photorealism where she honed her painterly skills and came upon the particular combination of acrylic and oil paints that have become a hallmark of her creations. Photorealism soon gave way to surrealism as she increasingly sought to explore personal emotions and anxieties through art. As Loribelle puts it, her art is "...an attempt to externalise internal conflict, creating a juxtaposition of movement and stillness that forms an unsettling effect..." 

The haunting portraits of her Homme series are a product of this process. They have a somewhat ominous feel owing in part to their energetic brushstrokes, artfully imbued with the ambivalent and sometimes negative emotions of the subject. Added to this are the intensely expressive eyes and strangely pulsating skin made all the more poignant by the intentional erasure of other facial organs.                                                                                                

In her critically acclaimed Memento Mori collection, Loribelle boldly explores anxiety and depression in young people. Her skilful superimposition of multiple images has an arresting effect. And beyond the anxiety that inevitably arises from confronting one's own mortality or indeed, the mortality of others, viewers ultimately perceive and are inspired by the artist’s emotional and existential courage.
