About

"Forrest Nymph" (2016) Oil on canvas 80 x 100 cm unframed Painting was started in 2015, most of it was finished by 2016, the last touches done in 2019. Inspired by the 19th century French painter Bouguereau, she wanted to depict a nymph that inhibits the forest, wearing a flower crown made from Hepatica flowers, wild forest flowers. The Painting’s Qualities Lyubena Fox’s paintings are painted in several layers, using both the transparent and opaque qualities of oil paint. Each layer is applied after the previous has dried which makes the painting withstand time. It also creates a glowing, three-dimensional effect, which is due to the different layers showing though each other. These paintings are painted following the logic of how the eye perceives: seeing the details in the context of the form. To create a fulfilling experience, the images are composed of places, full of detail for the eye to explore and places where the eye can rest. “The impressions of Lyubena's paintings on the viewer is so mighty, mesmerizing, grand, that it paralyzes the imagination with its realistic perfection. Her paintings bring emotion of drama, mystery, love, desire and energy, represented by the vast creative power of her talent.” Bio Lyubena Fox was born in 1994 in Sofia, Bulgaria. 2013 she graduated from the National school of fine arts Bulgaria, specializing in illustration. The same year she moved to Florence, Italy to study painting with John M. Angel and in 2016 graduated from Angel Academy of Art Florence, after which she studied with Alessandro Dari. 2017 she has two solo exhibitions in Sofia. 2018 Lyubena has three of her paintings qualified as ARC finalists and later in May studies painting with her favorite contemporary painter Roberto Ferri. In September she wins a scholarship from the Art Renewal Center Artist statement My work opposes the fast-paced consumerism and stressed ways of the society nowadays. It pays its respect to art history and it shows how much we can learn from our past in order to live and create to our fullest now. My work suggests, in the way it's painted, that you can also choose how paint/live your life accordingly to what you truly crave, despite what the current fashion is. The knowledge of the materials used and the chemical reactions towards their surroundings has been applied to create these works of art, which will last in time. The artist’s artworks are owned in museum and private collections worldwide. Snow Pearl art gallery provides Certificate of authenticity of this artwork.
