French visual artist Emmanuelle Rybojad (1991), takes us on a journey into the world of illusion. In her studio, inspired by the symbols of the OpArt movement and pop culture of the 1970s.
For this self-taught artist the path to creation was intuitive. She grew up surrounded by works of art, alongside her father-in-law, an active collector who introduced her to the great movements of art history. Emmanuelle is interested in all forms of art and which she approaches with profound curiosity. She is constantly curious about exploring and developing art that can be displayed elsewhere than on the walls, such as a coffee table and other media. Fascinated by space and matter, she constantly seeks to divert objects from their main function.
Emmanuelle Rybojad dares, tries, tries again and ends by succeeding. For the artist, the difficulties are made to be circumvented and the obstacles guide her towards inventive paths.
She is a young alchemist who works with various supporting elements: mosaics of Rubik's Cubes, objects illuminated by neon strips, Plexiglas, geometric shapes put in perspective by an assemblage of mirrors. Constantly flirting with geometry, she skillfully creates mosaics and geometric shaped 3D LED installations.
Her LED artworks consist of a perforated mirror base from which comes a succession of Plexiglas rods illuminated by LED lights. The angle from which the onlooker is viewing the artwork defines the visual result which changes along the way and changing on every angle. Her LED works are perhaps the most recognizable and representative pieces for Rybojad, not only for their boldness and multidimensionality, but also for allowing the viewer to delve into an ever-changing visual experience.
