Emily Lovejoy

Artist + Emily Lovejoy

I am a New Orleans based artist and photographer. In 2012, I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art with an emphasis on painting from the University of New Orleans. My work centers on surreal portraiture in which the contrast between real and surreal is confronted through a lens of bold imagery and hypnagogic colors. The 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 record the 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.
