ADELE RENAULT

 

Adele Renault (1988) paints realistic portraits of pigeons and people. Her subject matter may live in the gutter or in an ivory tower and the size of her work ranges from small canvas to giant mural. Renault grew up on a musical family on a farm in the Belgian Ardennes. At age 14 she traveled abroad alone; lived in Venezuela on an exchange, then two years in Brighton, England. She studied and practiced visual arts, from classical oil painting to modern-day spray can graffiti. In 2010 she graduated from the Academie Royale des Beaux Arts in Brussels with a degree in Graphic Design. Renault is fascinated by the inconspicuous beauty of every day objects and subjects. She observes closely those and that not considered worthy of a second look. She paints portraits of faces, the elderly, the homeless and pigeons in a realistic style. Her subjects are pictured as photographed, yet are then isolated from their context, enlarged and flooded in sunlight. She captures moments and expressions full of stories and meaning. Suddenly a scruffy pigeon and a woman in the last days of her life emanate a quiet grace and irresistible force of life.

Adele Renault (1988)擅長描繪超寫實的鴿子及人物畫像。她創作的主題可能存在於水溝或是象牙塔上;作品的尺寸從小型的畫布到大型的壁畫都可以看見。

Renault生於一個音樂世家,從小在比利時阿登尼斯地區的農場長大。14歲時,她獨自一人出國旅行,首先在委內瑞拉交換住宿,然後再到英國布賴頓待了兩年。

她學習和練習視覺藝術,風格從古典油畫到現代噴霧罐塗鴉都有接觸。2010年她畢業於比利時布魯塞爾皇家藝術學院,並拿到了平面設計的學位。

Renault被日常主題及日常事物那不起眼的美麗所深深吸引,她近距離的觀察那些人們認為不值得再看一次的事物。她以逼真的風格描繪了長者的臉部、無家可歸的流浪漢、和鴿子的畫像。任何物件被她繪畫得就像是攝影一樣,然而與真實背景隔離、被放大、並沐浴在陽光下。她捕捉充滿故事性並具有意義的時刻和表情。忽然間她發現,一隻骯髒的鴿子和一個處於生命後期的女人竟然能散發出一種幽靜的優雅和不可抗拒的生命力量。
