Emily Lovejoy

Artist + Emily Lovejoy

I am a New Orleans based artist and photographer. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art with an emphasis on painting from the University of New Orleans in 2012. I mainly explore identity through my work, which centers on surreal portraiture. In my work the contrast between real and surreal is confronted through a lens of bold imagery and hypnagogic colors. My subjects, seemingly existing in parallel worlds, tempt the viewer to stay and interpret their own projections. The goal is to invoke an emotional response with contemporary composition, and modern surrealism. It is important for me to record my subjects and capture not only their likeness, but also a sense of their personality and the time they live in. Portraiture is a calling I will never fully understand, but with each piece I glean fresh motives.
