Artwork description

Yulia Lebedeva gracefully captures the candid summer heat in one still image. Her images often utilise colour and motion to capture the excitement of the now. In this specific photograph, the ‘still-life’ style ensemble of food and beverages on the table and static sea in the background are juxtaposed to the beautiful woman captured mid-motion as she gracefully stretches across the table to capture this moment for herself in her phone camera. Such action amplifies the importance of this aesthetic moment since it is photographed not once but twice.

Yulia Lebedeva

Artist statement: 

21st century human relationships and interactions are at the core of my artistic practice. My photography focuses on capturing people in their various habitats, driven by colour, capturing the excitement of now. My work is rhythmic, feminine and self evolving. It grows from an intimate setting of one’s personal commodities, memorable symbolical elements into the utopian dream-like yet calculated and steady ambience. It feels almost like music with its own rules of rhythm, repetition and imagination.

The photos usually convey the mental landscape that surrounds modern humanity. The required lifesaving cocoon of prosperity, light-heartedness and the ‘good life’ that people weave by documenting and carefully selecting events in their life, creating their own ‘comfort zone’.
