Alea Pinar Du Pre
Building on the synthetic intensity of digital art, Alea Pinar Du Pre’s figurative style depicts a familiar but warped daily life. Portraits of women are introduced through shattered reflections as Pinar Du Pre reveals the fragmented identities of her subjects.
Pinar Du Pre’s technique involves a fusion of materials, outlooks, and diverse inspirations. With layered materials such as acrylics, printed elements, and gilt captured under an epoxy lens, Pinar Du Pre finds a physical representation of the layered reality she aims to depict in her subjects. Paying tribute to her main influences, Pinar Du Pre describes her style as "Jugendstil Pop-Art". Distinguishing herself from Pop-Art, which is largely stimulated by the iconography of materialism, Pinar Du Pre’s vision is intimate and intends to subvert the genre.
