Meet Camilla Lundbak




IN THE MAKING...

 

FreeflyWall is a contemporary art gallery owned by Wellington-based artist and photographer Camilla Lundbak, and a result of collaborating with people that share a similar passion for creativity and professionalism.

 

First, Makeweb Ltd, an energetic and dynamic New Zealand-based company that excel in online business tools, which have been used to build this gallery. Secondly, the talented graphic designer Bram Goewie, based in Belgium, who enthusiastically and to perfection translated my values into the FreeflyWall logo. Thirdly, Ken Ball's invaluable support, encouragement and mentoring from across the Tasman Sea.

 

 

ARTIST AND PHOTOGRAPHER


Style


  • my style is expressive yet in a sensitive, delicate and subtle way. I celebrate movement, blur and creative angles.

 

Approach


  • the world around me is the starting point but I explicitly insert “gaps” in my works for the viewer to fill.

 

  • art is judged by its end-result but to me it matters how you get there. This gives me a strong focus on skill and creativity in making artwork; for example, using “in-camera” techniques instead of post-production effects.

 

For further information on my style and approach specifically to photography, have a look at the article >>Impressionist Photography<<.
