"Colours have their own language, strictly related to emotions, feelings and psychology, this is known as chromology. I incorporate this practice to an analysis and reflection of myself and my surroundings. As human beings, we experience a multitude of emotions and experiences through our life such as love, belonging, trauma, healing and my mission is to portray these experiences and emotions as abstract images and texts as well as research their meaning with a focus on colour. I encourage the viewer to observe my work with mindfulness, fully present, allowing colours and shapes to speak directly to you " - Alessia Camoirano Bruges
Alessia Camoirano Bruges is an Italian-Colombian artist based in London. She has lived in many places, each one inspiring her deeply. Her work explores identity and human experiences with the aid of colours and emotional response. She graduated from the University of the Arts London where she studied film and TV, and learned how colours impact on our emotions and moods. She then found fluid art, which she related to deeply. She combines, colours, fluidity and emotional intensity into her arts practice, and sees each artwork as a cathartic experience in which she is able to connect to her inner child and let go of anything that holds her back by "simply" being present. Each painting is then followed by lyrics written by the artist.
