Alisa Gafur

Alisa Gafur

Hometown: West Vancouver

Based in: West Vancouver

Self taught. Originally trained as an optometrist in NYC, I also worked as a fashion stylist through school. This is where I began to get interested in photography, colour theory and the use of dimension and optics. The artwork started out as a photograph where I use light, shadow and colour to create an image, I then use layering of acetate and resin to add dimension to create a sculpture out of a photograph.

More About Alisa Gafur

IconInspires

What inspires you?

The medium of photography and the use of optics, light and dimension to create an image always inspires me. Combining these shapes with the use of colour theory allows a sculpture to be made from a photogaph, that can vary depending on background, lighting conditions and ambient light.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I love chasing shadows, particularly during the golden hour, so I look for interesting naturally occurring shapes to create an image, then use filters and digitally create another overlying shape.

IconMagnifying

What are 3 words that best describe your work?

Shadow, light and colour theory

IconUser

Who are some artists that have influenced your work?

Nick Knight, Gerhardt Richter, Kal Mansur

IconTool

What is the most important tool when creating your work?

Natural light and the use of architecture to create shadow, shape and a structure.

IconGive

What is the best piece of advice you have been given?

Always appreciate the simple little things in life.

IconLightbulb

Where do you go for inspiration?

On my deck to admire sunrises and sunsets. I love the creative energy of New York City too.
