Simultaneously with her exhibitions in Miami (Art Fusion Galleries) and in New York (Agora Agallery), French contemporary artist Joëlle Kem Lika will be present at the International Contemporary Art Fair, Vienna Showcase, on October 25th and 26th.
She will be exhibiting paintings of women surfers that are part of her collection “My Surf Dreaming” : women with tatoos on their bodies, in all their beauty and power, riding on the wave of Life.
Joëlle Kem Lika seeks to express life in the matter. She develops three lines of work :
– Abstract paintings, inspired by the light in the water, reflections of the sun in the ocean and the light, clouds in the sky…
– Flowers and what she calls their “pulse of life”, that she expresses via the dynamism of the movement;
– “Surf Dreaming“, expression created by the artist. The portrayal of a modern surfer in an ancestral Arboriginal style creates a time anomaly that she calls “Surf Dreaming”.
Acrylic, watercolours, Indian or coloured inks, she has chosen techniques that are instantaneous, explosions of energy, that dry quickly, demand a steady rhythm, a subtle play between mastery and letting go, the intention and the surprise.
Joëlle Kem Lika is being represented by galleries in France and abroad : New York, London, Rome, Miami.
She regularly shows her work at art fairs and other contemporary art events : soon, Mulhouse (Art3f, November 29/December 1st) and at the end of this fall, Art en capital at the Grand Palais, Champs Elysées, Paris (Salon des Artistes Indépendants, December 4 through 8, 2013).
She has created three galleries “La LiLa” in France : Paris, Burgundy (near Chablis) and Aquitaine (by the Atlantic Ocean).
At the majestic and historic Palais Schönborn in the heart of Vienna, 150 of most talented and emergent selected artists from around the world, will be exhibiting their artworks at the Museum of Young Art, located within Palais Schönborn for a two-day Art exhibition.
