Space Nurse

about Eugenia Loli

Eugenia Loli has been a terrible nurse, but not everyone is good with the kids, especially when you have a lot in common with them but you have to be more responsible, cause “you’re all grown up”. So she’s been a computer programmer, a — rather successful — technology journalist, and a filmmaker, but she left that impersonal world behind in order to build new, exciting worlds via her art.

In April 2012, after she had just finished an animated music video, she decided to try collaging after the knowledge she gathered from making the animation. She got hooked ever since! Her collages, with the help of the title, often include a teasing, visual narrative, as if they’re a still frame of a surreal movie. The viewers are invited to make up the movie’s plot in their mind.

Describing one of her projects, Three Minutes to Nirvana, Eugenia writes about “all that we can comprehend while in our human form”. The endless space is permanently waiting for our drive to be over, even from a fridge, that you can open as it’s a shuttle.

“It’s also what keeps us within boundaries, limiting our existence, experience and understanding. The bottom level is about developing, learning, and trying out various routes. In the process, and among progress, there’s also war and misery — as evident by the fire in the background. The cube in the field is the teaser of the ultimate prize, placed in by the people on the top level — the “Ascended”. The second level is about expanding our horizons further, making the leap towards an enlightened state.

“I got into collage because I loved Julien Pacaud’s illustrations, but it was Kieron “Cur3es” Cropper who became my main influence. The guy’s a genius. Bryan “Glass Planet” Olson and David Delruelle are also influences of mine. From the older artists, I’d have to say, Magritte. However, I collage on many different styles: from “pop” to dada, and from modern illustrations to traditional surrealism. I don’t believe that artists should “find their style”. That’s artistic death. If I have a style, it’s probably some “meta” aspect of it — e.g. the sarcasm that I usually employ in my collages —, rather than something visual.

Grew up in Greece, Eugenia has lived in Germany and UK. These days she lives and takes care of her planets in California.
