SCARLETT RAVEN: AUGMENTIST

Scarlett Raven (b.1986) is a British painter who attended Central St Martins where she studied fine art. She secured her first solo exhibition in Cork street a year before she graduated.

Scarlett describes herself as an Augmentist. She paints impressionistically but uses augmented reality to reveal the deeply personal process beneath each painting.

Fifteen years ago she created a painting that made someone cry.

With her new approach to painting she is producing a body of work with similar aspirations to enkindle the senses. These days Scarlett comes armed with a tool designed to take the painting process to a place far beyond the canvas: Augmented Reality (AR).

AR strips away the layers of her paintings to reveal Scarlett’s creative journey beneath: the thought processes, the paint strokes, the inspiration, the effort, the musings, the mistakes. It is a place where digital meets analogue. Where paint collaborates with pixels.

And Scarlett is its premier exponent: the World’s First Augmented Reality Fine Artist.

They say a picture paints a thousand words. Under the surface of Scarlett’s AR paintings are tens of thousands of other images, overlaid and layered with thought and inspiration.

A thousand words doesn’t begin to cover it.
