"Rise, Shine!" / PHOTO GALLERY

“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you." Isaiah 60, 1-2

Holló Manuella Andrada prepared her series of paintings, entitled Rise, shine! with acryl-mixed technique, in 50x70 size. Her works have been inspired by the glamorous world of shop-windows and Andy Warhol’s vibrant silk-screens full of colour contrasts.

The vivid colours, the glimmer, the use of different materials and the patterns of figures applied, all aim at illustrating the anomalies of metropolitan life, while the energetically and impressionalistically painted background, covered with flowers, is intended to draw attention to the wonderful harmony of nature.

The imperative of the title has a double meaning, expressing rebirth both in a physical and in a spiritual way.

Her pictures capture the moment of the explosion, happening when natural and artificial beauty, nature and the world of fashion meet: they express that artificial beauty can also be real and in harmony with nature, while warning us to keep our inner values and grasp the beauty inherent in our faith and feelings.
