Red Coat, 2014
Ariane Fairlie is a visual artist and free-lance writer living in Montreal. She recently completed a Fine Arts degree at Concordia University.
Artist Statement: “Ariane is concerned with concepts of observation and realism. She enjoys the inconsistencies that are the result of translating three dimensions into two. They create a beautiful and dynamic realism, different from what can be accomplished with a two-dimensional reference image. She’s interested in the technical challenges of textures, colours, light, and form. She tries to evoke emotion and character in her ‘Clothing Portraiture’, and believes clothing as a subject is a universally relatable theme, unless you’re a very dedicated nudist. Her aim is to create artwork that is honest and vulnerable, bold and fun, and have the viewer recognize something of themselves and the human experience in each piece.”
Here is part of a series she did last year, in 2014.
