This week’s StandardVision artist spotlight on the SVLA1 screen at the Marriott Courtyard Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles features work by Elizaveta Porodina. Porodina is the latest of many artists to be invited to take over a two week-long recurring 15-second spot to showcase their work to the public.
In her experimental fashion and fine art photography, Elizaveta Porodina travels through time and space, extracting the underlying emotions in her entrancing productions. The Moscow born studied clinical psychologist plays with melancholic symbolism, sets connotations, sometimes ambiguous, sometimes honest and obvious – her range widely varying between cinematic, fashion and almost documentary imagery. Whether in dramatic black and white or vividly colored artworks, the Munich based photographer is a master of dark romanticism.
Porodina has skyrocketed to global recognition in recent years with her unique experimental vision that entrances with it’s incredible, emotional abstraction. Gifted with an inherent understanding of form and elegance, her approach to portraiture is as symbolic as it is sublime and otherworldly and she has already produced an indelible language within her quickly growing repertoire that will undoubtedly stand the test of our time. A poet with a camera, her impressive list of commercial clients include everyone from Elle magazine to BMW yet she remains pure in her continual discoveries.
You can catch Porodina’s work on the SVLA1 screen through August 5 as well as on her Instagram here.
