"All ROADS LEAD TO NEW YORK"
An art show at 25 CPW from June 16 through June 19 2010
Six female artists with vastly different backgrounds, converge in this beautiful space to show their works that are diverse as their genre, temperament and technique. The only common denominator between them is the East European/Russian roots, they all had to cross the ocean at different time to come here.
The collection of their works is an artistic smorgasbord with samples of oil paintings, enamel jewelry, mixed media sculpture and mounted drawings/paintings of a Russian folk costume.
Six different personalities with different view on the world and self within this world expressed as uniquely as their personalities afford.
Tanya Migdal: works in enamel on precious metals, delicate filigree and precision of her work evokes old Russian tradition of the end of 18tht-19th centuries when elaborate pieces like hers were the novelty only to become a true Russian style forever.
Edina Seleskovic: her work is a visual display and an emotional exploration through figurative representation. It incorporates sculpture and painting as fragments of memory, pieces of narrative. Female forms are not only her canvas or an extension of self, but also a sacred landscape ravaged and universally understood. Sculpted figures simplify the external of everyday life that hides the struggles of nostalgic monodrama. Yet those are not easily hidden. They emerge as distant snapshots of painted images, constant reminders of a vibrant eternal landscape.
Natalie A. Kram: her paintings burst with color and style that would be instantly recognizable at a glance as her own. It could be categorized as expressive abstraction where one can interpret her images in his own way and concoct one's own "story". It has some resemblance of Miro but perhaps more "populated" on canvas.
Udita Leberg-Shapiro: The concept of one's affirmation of life through the continuous process of observation is essential for her work as an artist. An image of the individual and the world that surrounds him is her primary inspiration.
The communication between the world of the imaginary and the world of the real forms a dialogue that serves as a driving force of motivation in her art work.
Tatiana Golovnya with her artistic rendering of Russian Folk Costume, a jamboree of colors where her "dancing girls" as she calls them parade dresses richly embellished with Russian detail that could become an inspiration for contemporary designers to derive their ideas from.
Natasha Zyablova: her drawings first were exhibited in the Grant Gallery in 1999, when she was 16 and in spite of the fact that she was offered to stay in New York to continue her artistic education she preferred to come back to Moscow and had chosen the career in 3D- animation. The drawings displayed in the show were created when she was 12-16 years old.
The exhibition will last only four day with the opening reception on June 16th from 6pm to 8pm. At the closing night the musical event will take place.
