"Optical art, also known as Op Art, is a style of art that uses geometric shapes, lines, and color to create optical illusions that can create a sense of movement or depth. Figurative painting, my strong-hold, on the other hand, refers to - well - figures :-)
A few months ago, I started playing around and incorporate Op Art elements such as bold lines and geometric patterns into my figurative works. By doing so, my portraiture gained a dynamic visual effect that draws the viewer's eye and adds depth and a sense of ambiguity and playfulness."
ALEA PINAR DUPRE
Alea Pinar Du Pre is an internationally established mid-career artist currently living and working in both Amsterdam and Istanbul.
As an Austrian/Turkish Painter born in 1972 in Vienna Alea Pinar Du Pre has been influenced deeply by the artists of Künstlerhaus and Wiener Werkstaette. As a highly talented autodidact she started painting early on. With the age of six she had produced about 500 drawn paper dolls. With age 13 she painted her first oil colour figures and invented an oil colour printing technique. Between 1995 – 2005 she produced a series of cubistic oil paintings picturing street scenes of Istanbul. Her inquisitive mind finds inspiration mainly in areas such as science, science-fiction, history and anthropology. Du Pre has been continuously developing radically new and innovative approaches to painting in which she mixes digital art with ‘the real world’
"My endless questioning of the nature of our existence stems from an insatiable curiosity and an unfathomable love for truth. I believe in the sacredness of human experience. Art is a canvas to mutate my curiosity into a form I can share – to transfer scientific curiosity into pictures - to give form to the formless.”
