Maria Rivans
''Joy'' Limited edition print of surrealistic collage with portrait of a woman

2019

$2,100

About

Maria Rivans is a contemporary British artist, known for her scrapbook-style collage aesthetic. A mash-up of Surrealism meets Pop-Art, Rivans’s work re-appropriates vintage ephemera to create dreamy realms, which transport the viewer into fantastical worlds of the imaginary. Each one finished with a dusting of subtle humor. In her pin-up series, Maria Rivans reclaims iconic femininity to champion female strength. Her exotic and escapist works are often laced with ominous undertones, to remind us of the darker side of human nature. Starring Jean Simmons - British starlet of 1950s fame - as ‘Joy’, an exuberant and sunny character, Rivans’s print has the heady buzz of spring about it. Filled with the joys of life, Joy sparkles in her feathered, off-the-shoulder collar and signature exotic headdress, which brims with flora, fauna, and fantastical fragments. A lover of nature and music, travelling and the simple pleasures of life, Joy wears her passions on her bounteous bonnet: vintage cars for speeding across countries; old-fashioned radios for tuning into meandering melodies; bumblebees signal her ecological activism; firecrackers for the vitality of life; the lull of the sea, sounding in the depths of pearly shells; and the soft wings of white birds for taking flight at the drop of a headdress. Through an intense attention to detail and an artistic sensitivity to color and composition, each of Rivans’ artworks is the product of months of careful deliberations and decisions, every tiny tweak necessary in the final formation. Maria Rivans works from her studio in Brighton and exhibits throughout the UK. Her work is also highly appreciated internationally. Her colorful collages can be seen from New York to Hong Kong. ''Joy'' has an edition of 60.
