Barbara Bright is a 'twenty-year-old' new artist. She is inspired by the hyperrealism current, interpreting it with personal style, especially in view of women who are subtracted to the monotonous and stereotyped attitudes represented by the historical figures of the movement.
She experiences with paint, pastel, ink and from the beginning of 2013 she devoted herself mainly to the design, using in a very personal way blenders and graphite powder of different hardness refining the shading techniques with the aim to better define the different types of epidermis. She is focused on eyes and lips, composing two panels of five pieces each. She works long on the human iris to make it more liquid and transparent. To draw lips, she puts up a basic grid that follows the natural skin folds (as volume rendering used for the realization of plastic architectural). With these methods, she is able to obtain hyperrealistic effects, requiring Barbara to the attention of the experts.
She lives and studies in Umbria, the green heart of Italy. Her artworks have been displayed for the first time at the Palazzo del Capitano in Todi from 20/04/2013 to 01/05/2013.
