Portraits paintings by Loribelle Spirovski


socialmediaimage

I’m very intrigued by spaces and how they can affect and shape its occupants. As a child, I was always watching people, but was always more interested in spaces under the bed, in the crevice of a couch, or the corner of a wall. I would gravitate to those places and sit very close to them, feeling myself become separated from the world outside. I think that I still work in the same way, and am very sensitive to my surroundings, so the work that I tend to produce reflects how I was feeling within particular spaces.

The Fallen Angel by Alexandre Cabanel


socialmediaimage

The Fallen Angel is part of the Musée Fabre collection. It is a classic portrayal of a man by an academic artist Alexandre Cabanel. With the crafted way he depicts the musculature of the figure.  The angel has both arms raised and his fingers of his two hands interlocked hiding most of his face.  Cabanel’s inspiration for this work was John Milton’s 1667 epic poem Paradise Lost and the fallen angels, Moloch, Belial, Mulciber, Mammon and Beelzebub.  In the work we see the “fallen” angel – fallen from grace and banished by God.
