Flóra Borsi’s Elegant Self-Portraits Subtly Blend Photography and Painting

Hungarian artist Flóra Borsi likes to experiment with photography and other mediums, resulting in incredibly unique projects like urban landscapes set in a coffee universe and abstract portraits reimagined as real people. Her latest series IREL features subtle portraits that simultaneously look like pictorial photos and hyperrealistic paintings. Both sensual and elegant, the images portray the artist herself posing against a simple blue backdrop. Rough brushstrokes of paint streak across the surface, obscuring and engaging with Borsi at the same time.

In the description of her series, Borsi explains, “A hyperrealist painter aims to achieve a result which looks like a real photographic picture. A pictorialist photographer's desired result is visually equivalent to a painting.” Her exquisite images seamlessly blend photographic elements with painting techniques, raising intriguing questions about each medium and the way they overlap.
