A spread of poetic-surreal photography artworks surrounds the 16th edition of the Art International Zurich (October 16-19, 2014) with works by Yolaine B. Vinvent. Inundated with visual metaphors, her artwork appears in a tactile interplay of spaces, colors and words. In the heart of Zurich, Art International Zurich showcases innovative contemporary art in an exclusive location of the Congress Hall Zurich. The juried art fair is featuring an international slate of artists and galleries.
The 16th Art International Zurich is promised to be an important event for all serious collectors, curators, museum directors and interior designers, providing an intimate look at some of the most important work at the forefront of the international contemporary art movement. Some of this year’s highlights include photography artworks by Yolaine B. Vincent. On focus is her recent series wich invites art lovers at Collectors’ Preview to discuss about it.
The Canadian visual artist was born in 1984 and studied at College Maisonneuve Montréal. Her work has been featured worldwide (London, Zurich, Montréal, Quebec among others) and is held in private collections. Admired for over a decade for her photos the photographer artist, who is living and working in Montréal, is coming to Switzerland to show her new and innovative digital fusion project. Yolaine B. Vincent has created an exclusive collection which fullfil collector’s high expectations.
With the layers of successive, Yolaine B. Vincent's works in highly colorful tones and apparent abstractness achieve to derange the viewer. A closer look reveals subtle interactions between symbols and elements.
Yolaine B. Vincent is creating impressionistic effects by the overlaying of different images, written codes and colors surface with modern photographic process of digital fusion. The work contains an aesthetic concept playing within the pre-existent remembering, the process of construction and reconstruction.
Much of her works questions the viewer about man and mind, thinking, feeling and transcending. Yolaine B. Vincent ’s compositions are like a daydream where memories get mixed in reality and illusion: take me to paradise.
