Auckland based artist Rozi Demant creates exquisitely detailed surrealist style portraits. Her works typically feature female subjects paired with symbolic motifs which enhance the narrative of the work.
Connections to artists such as Dali can be seen in the work through references to rolling Catalan mountain backdrops. Common symbols include jewellery, dragonflies, cats and hummingbirds. The inclusion of metallic highlights adds a sense of lustre and opulence to the work. Demant's scenes invite thoughtful contemplation in order to appreciate their compelling symbolism.
Demant staged her first show exhibition at just 17 and has been practicing ever since. She has held numerous solo exhibitions and has work held in private collections through New Zealand.
Demant's exquisitely detailed surrealist style portraits invite thoughtful contemplation.
