With Love and Kindness Forever | Maria Rivans is a new body of still life works. Rivans celebrates the exuberance of earth, of goodness, and of all things living. An urn by the Venetian artist Giovanni Piranesi takes centre stage, overflowing with flora and fauna that seem to burst with vibrant life. Amongst the heady bouquet, Rivans embeds emblems of the earth’s great magic and mystery: a pomegranate, to symbolise fertility, beauty and eternal life; a budgie, with its mystical ability for mimicry; a vintage wristwatch, to remind us that time is only a construct; a bumblebee, keeping the great cycle of life turning; and a ballerina, whose poise and grace symbolise harmony and rhythmic life. Made during the lockdown of 2021, With Love and Kindness, Forever offers a joyful window onto the world – a much-needed tonic in a time of confined existence.

Maria Rivans

Maria lives and works in Brighton, UK, and is a contemporary artist best known for her bright and eclectic collages. Her scrapbook-style aesthetic is created by appropriating vintage ephemera and combining it with vivid, and often humorous, imagery.

Maria adopts a fresh approach to collage by maintaining dialogue with cultures and imagery of the past and using the style to reflect the complex world we live in. We love the precision the artist applies to collating and assembling her compositions in order to find the perfect imagery to piece together each surreal artwork.

Maria studied 3D design at the University of Brighton. She has exhibited in both solo and group shows across the UK and Europe, as well as Hong Kong, Korea, and New York. Her artwork has been featured in The Times newspaper and in 2018 one of her artworks was selected for the Royal Academy’s 250th Summer Exhibition.
