Brazilian born and California-based artist Drica Lobo makes modern landscapes, transforming the familiar into a bold, joyful, and powerful scenario and manipulating shapes and feelings through the selection and composition of color.
Shifting between traveling and working in her studio, Lobo creates pieces that represent both freedom state of mind and dreamlike. Her paintings and art installations, rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination.
ABOUT HER WORK
Her work captures the happiness and vibrant strokes. Drica’s paintings establish a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. These works focus on concrete questions that determine our existence. By examining the ambiguity and origination via retakes and variations, she investigates the dynamics of landscape, including the manipulation and the limits based on our assumptions of what scene means to us.
The unique way she explores her acrylic paintings into the canvas in such an evolving way as if colors were feelings, and also possibilities.
"I paint colorfully to show the world the positive influence of colors and the power of strokes, creating an imaginary scenario based on nature and freedom. Art is limitless, and I'm committed to making the viewer closer to his heart, manipulating shapes and feelings through an exploration of composition and color. More than anything, my paintings represent life's force, where everything is frequencies. My painting was born to celebrate happiness, increase joy, and transform our community vistas familiar. It's an invitation to entering a dream-like state and immerse from my uniquely colorful canvases. This satisfaction is pure high vibration. Exactly what the world needs the most."
Drica's fascination with art began as a small child. But it wasn't until she moved to California that her art had a new beginning. Her aesthetic begins to shift, and she found her way of interpretation of frequencies and energy around us, enhancing a unique perspective in dynamic strokes, bold colors, and intricate texture.
Drica Lobo currently lives and works in Hermosa Beach. Her art is included in public and private collections around the world, including Brazil, United States, Singapore, and China.
