Coronavirus lockdown so Lets talk about Carolina Mizrahi and social media
Updated: Mar 20, 2020
Carolina Mizrahi is an artist who I wanted to show as part of our upcoming show Beautiful Nightmare in May, alas Coronavirus has seen to the shows postponement... so I've decided that while I'm working from home I'd start a blog, it'll be a bit more personal than the usual Gallery stuff, so here goes...
Carolina is an artist who I've been following for a while, I've seen her work at art fairs and shows and its always been the most striking thing in the room. Her block colours and subversive themes of feminism run through her beautifully composed photographs, each part of a series to form a larger narrative. The series Avatar focuses on our social media selves and this idea of perfection that we strive for on social platforms. During these uncertain times perhaps we could look at honesty on social media, let's not aim for the perfect picture but let's talk about our real selves, let's share information, feelings, conversations, let's try and use the internet for the powers of good.

'With a host of renowned clients including Vogue, Elle, Swarovski, Pandora, Aquazzura and WeTransfer, Carolina Mizrahi (b. 1982) is an art director, photographer and set designer whose cross-disciplinary practice traverses a line between fine art and commerce.
Having graduated from London College of Fashion in 2013, Mizrahi has accrued a number of international commissions and exhibitions as well as creating several acclaimed personal series with a bold and recognisable aesthetic – images that construct new worlds of surreal design and visual identity.
Each of Mizrahi’s projects present geometric playgrounds where block colour, playful styling and product placement come together as complementary counterparts. Harnessing the possibilities of set design, the artist presents complex sensory environments that draw the eye into a vibrant stage. Full of potential, the images utilise the spaces between reality as pathways into the imagination'
