Alea Pinar Du Pre

As an Austrian/Turkish Painter born in 1972 in Vienna Alea Pinar Du Pre has been influenced deeply by the artist of Künstlerhaus and Wiener Werkstaette. As a highly talented autodidact she started painting early on. With the age of six she had produced about 500 drawn paper dolls. With age 13 she painted her first oil colour figures and invented an oil colour printing technique. Between 1995 – 2005 she produced a series of cubistic oil paintings picturing street scenes of Istanbul. In 2006 she developed her current technique in which she mixes digital art with ‘the real world’.

"I am an artist with an immense curiosity in the nature of reality. And reality isn't what it's been cracked up to be! The insights of modern science point to a universe that's undivided, in which all parts merge and unite in one totality. The ultimate nature of physical reality is not as a collection of separate objects (as it appears), but instead an undivided whole in a dynamic state of flux. Inspired by these findings I create artistic metaphors reflecting this more challenging view of a very new kind of reality. My work explores the territory between the world ‘out there’ and our very different 'worlds within’. My paintings portray the fact that our perceptions of solid reality are as deceptively virtual as everything else in a world the mind molds as readily as plastic. My technique also involves a fusion of materials, outlooks and diverse inspirations. Building on the synthetic intensity of digital art, my figurative style depicts a familiar but warped daily life. The artworks are a medley of the virtuality of our perception represented by new media and digital arts and the tangible reality of our daily lives represented by ‘old media’ with substances like acrylics, gilding, glass paint and epoxy glass. The choice of materials - acrylics, printed elements, and layers of glass colours captured under a shiny lens - represents another aspect of the layered reality I aim to depict. The use of multi-media reflect on the beautiful components of our physical world, as well as the contorted sense of reality through which we perceive them. Conceptually guided by the scientific findings of quantum mechanics and M-theory, I try to recount my metaphysical findings with brush strokes and inventive collage techniques, generating intricate layers of compartmentalized aesthetics and mediums that create depths in texture and dimensional context. My aim is to help administer a small dose of inner perceptiveness! Looking into and beyond the canvas, I hope we will find new ways to narrate what we see. Each piece has its own narrative, designed to stimulate the audience to reflect on the blurred playground that bridges the visible and invisible, reality and perception. ‘What is reality?’ is the central theme across the series and in each painting we glimpse a fraction of it, before it escapes. Each mind always contains the whole picture, but with a limited perspective. Because we each have different experiences, each perspective is also valid and equally distorted. Our brains mathematically construct objective reality by interpreting frequencies that are ultimately projections form another dimension, a deeper order of existence that is beyond both space and time. My endless questioning the nature of our existence stems from an insatiable curiosity and an unfathomable love for truth. I believe in the sacredness of the human experience. Art is a canvas to mutate my curiosity into a form I can share – to transfer scientific and spiritual curiosity into pictures - to give form to the formless. The revolutionary notion of systematic unity derives from a collective analysis of recognized discoveries in physics. In recent years, this scientific category of focus has gathered extensive structural understandings of life beyond sensibly detectible matter. The boundless, convertible quality of energy points to a fluidity that dissolves any separation between elements in our formerly compartmentalized view. A more traditional evaluation segregates interior and exterior worlds, picking apart each conceivable aspect, its components, and so on in a continuously corrosive cycle of divisive complexity. As we divide further in terms of independent identification, the truth, too, becomes more distant.
