Painterly portraits with dramatic elements and unique colour compositions are characteristic of Vee Speers’ work. In The Birthday Party, we encounter her theatrical portraits of costumed children on their way to an imaginary celebration. Speers came up with the idea for the project during her daughter’s birthday party and considers it to be partly autobiographical, drawing from her own childhood memories in Australia. Against a timeless background, Speers’ portraits of children’s dress-up are as whimsical as they are threatening. This premium quality art print has been produced on medium weight(280gsm/satin finish) art stock using lightfast pigment based inks resulting in a sharp, vivid image with a high degree of colour accuracy. Pair with an Ikea Ribba Frame for an inexpensive framing option.
Vee Speers, an Australian artist, has lived and worked in Paris since 1990. Speers studied fine art and photography at the QCA in Brisbane before working as a Stills Photographer at the ABC Television in Sydney in the 80’s. After moving to Paris she began exhibiting her series ‘Bordello’ , followed by The Birthday Party, Immortal and Thirteen, engaging viewers with the dramatic tension of her portraits and her unique pallet of colour. "I don’t like to follow the crowd. I like to seduce, with images that are at once disturbing and beautiful, but leaving a space for the viewer to enter my world. My portraits combine elements which evoke conflicting emotions that can surprise the viewer, telling a story that is somewhere between fantasy and reality, the obvious and the unexpected."
