3D works on show in solo exhibition
Virtual reality meets conventional painting at the latest exhibition at The Art Lounge.
Tauranga based Karolina Bemova, originally from Slovakia, has been invited to have solo exhibitionDeep
Under at the gallery on Devonport Rd, showcasing her three dimensional sculptures.
The sculptures— which have a feminist theme— appear to be coming out of the work.
“Karolina’s work spoke to me for its expressive, emotional and unique style,” says gallery owner Mira Corbova. “I absolutely adore her 3D foam wall sculptures, there is so much to say in one piece. Feminine, intellectual, strong and incredibly unique.”
Karolina’s sculptures are of women painted in gold, silver and bronzewith a precious metal look.
Karolina describesDeep Under as a body of works that investigates her own identity as a “true” woman. The postures look like they escaping or
rising out of the black, “representing ends and new beginnings”.
Karolina hopes to engage her audience and show them new ways of experiencing art by combining virtual reality.
The artist has also created new pieces including two horses in metallic colour (gold and silver) that means “rise up and empower” and the golden fish that “represents good luck”.
Karolina is studying creative industries at Toi Ohomai.
Her last exhibition included conventional art making approaches with stop motion animation and virtual reality technology.
