About Vicky

Napoli, Italy (1987)

In the prevailing digital climate I consider myself an image-maker moved by nostalgia.
My work is based on aesthetics, often influenced by the poetic of chance.

(…)Vicky Salabelle is an artist. With her whole heart and soul. Born in beautiful Naples, she now lives in Eindhoven in the Netherlands. She describes her own style as „image-making moved by nostalgia“. Hands a expressive shapers of creative thoughts are her preferred object, her collages make something like an own personality out of them, one that talks to the beholder, touch him and ultimately move him.

(…) Her work explores the role of the image in the Digital Era.
In opposition to the common current tendency to mediate through digital devices and, as conclusion to her studies in Information Design, Salabelle concentrates on the representation of the image as close as possible to reality, without alterations.
She uses images, photographies to manually compose collages with a strong nostalgic and delicate personality.
In her artistic production she has two fetish/constants: the use of the scanner, which she uses as a recording instrument, and the hands, as extension of the creative thought.
The hand, with a strong aesthetic value, is her first instrument for research, cognitive element and lastly visual portrayal. Among all empirical senses, she gives priority to touch: to touch matter to be able to know it.
The scanner, instead, is the only electronic artifice able to record the object in its integrity, which allows a real contact with it, and doesn’t allow the doubt of manipulation.
Her works have the necessity to preserve their manual matrix towards this computerized and digitalized society.
