10 代の頃から、鉛筆画作品などを発表する傍ら、写真の世界に興味を持ち、 創作的な作品を発表する写真家として現在に至る。彼女が生み出す作品は、アメリカ人でありながら情緒豊かな日本で育った生活環境に大きな影響を受けている。
Having been born and raised in Japan, Reylia Slaby uses the influences from her unusual upbringing as the main theme in her artwork.
Her photos are a rich blend of the Japanese aesthetic, and is greatly revealing of her personal experiences and thought.
From the culture ofJapan to being a ‘third culture kid,’ her desire is to weave all the different aspects of her life into her art. She strongly believes in an empirical body of work, and is adamant when it comes to adding an individual and unique meaning to each image.
Photography entered her life as a gradient.Originally a semi-professional graphite pencil artist, Reylia made a gradual switch to photography around her teen years, and then discovered fine art photography in 2012. It instantly struck a chord, and she knew that she had finally found her ideal outlet of self-expression, and for years immersed herself in the fine art world though books, online sources, and other artist’s work that inspired and moved her.
