Born in Brazil and based in Singapore, artist Deusa Blümke is a full time artist who finished her Fine Arts Masters Degree with Lasalle College of the arts in 2016. Having graduated with BA Fine Arts from LASALLE in 2012, Blumke’s foray into art embraces exploration in ways that reflect her reflections of life’s surprises.
Her artworks convey the impact of colours, material manipulation and expressive lines. Portraying a process through which she ‘listens’ to shapes and colours. Her artworks manifest a guided movement and flow of the brushstrokes from this technique. Making marks between layers of plexiglass, Deusa explores transparency, movement, gravity and time to achieve immediacy and richness in her paintings. She treats her paintings as energetic, live organisms, celebrating the energy and momentum of life.
She believes that looking through a glass window, one could choose to see only what is on the surface: the shine, the dirt or one’s (surface) reflection. Conversely, one could choose to immerse deeper, thereby giving one the opportunity to discover the serendipitous encounter with the latent meanings that the painting may present to the viewer. Ultimately, Deusa posits the choice within the viewer.
Deusa Blumke believes that art helps one to stop and appreciate moments to seek existing inner peace that most times, have laid forgotten inside each of us. Her artworks aim to capture our attention, even if it is only for a single moment because at the end of the day, this moment is all we have.
