The gorgeous, cosmic creations of talented local artist Emilia Rose Bellifemine are sure to enhance any space. Emilia began creating art only two years ago, upon returning to Australia after working in London. Her travels provided her with inspiration and led her to “begin exploring an interest of mine, abstract art.”
Emilia has “always had a fascination with art” and studied art whilst at school, though since then has “mostly been self taught, experimenting with a variety of techniques.” She says her canvas of choice “ranges from mirror, to wood, to stretched canvas,” and her pieces are created by building texture and depth using “a pouring medium, which is dyed with a fluid paint”. Once the medium is dry, Emilia adds the final touches using gold leaf pens and paint pens to “create a sense of movement on the pieces.”
Emilia explains, “I’ve always had a fascination with aerial views from flying”, an interest that is reflected within her art. For Emilia, this is “such a freeing way to paint" as she has no boundaries. The art itself transfers “that same sense of freedom to the viewer to let their imaginations go wild.”
Emilia’s creative flair and love of functional art led her to begin incorporating her paintings onto clock faces. Inspiration struck when Emilia “was on the hunt for a round canvas one day, and stumbled across a wall of clocks, which sparked the idea of creating a unique range of clocks.” Initially painting directly on the clock face, now original artworks are scanned and printed onto the clock.
One of Emilia’s greatest achievements so far occurred when Thebarton’s Entropy began exhibiting her artwork – “this was a huge achievement for me to have my art displayed in such a beautiful space,” Emilia explains. She says, “[I'm] blown away with where my art has taken me thus far,” and simply hopes that her beautiful pieces allow buyers “to own a unique piece of art that really speaks to them, without the hefty price tag.”
