My first solo exhibition at “the container”, Jaffa port, Israel.
Big paintings of fantastic women figures, medium paintings of magical landscapes and small prints of Matrioshka’s (available also at my Etsy shop, here.) If you’d like to get the full exhibition catalog, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
On May 1st, 2012, 20:00 there will be an opening night for my exhibition: “Woman – Nature”. It will take place in a huge hall which is also an excellent restaurant at Jaffa port. If you are in the neighborhood, please come!
I would love to hear your opinion about which painting to use on my invitation (postcard size):
The size of the first painting in reality is 50/60 cm
The size of the second painting is 150/200 cm
This is my finished painting, painted with acrylic on canvas, size 60/80. To see this painting in progress click here.
These days it’s almost spring in Israel, I see blossoming flowers and trees all around me. I’m taking my painting students to paint and draw outside and I enjoy every moment. Thanks to my 1.7 year old daughter I spend a lot of time in nature as she insists to get out of the house as much as she can. Blossoming trees are one of my favorite memories from my childhood in St.Petersburg, Russia, after the snow melt down and the sun came out. Here, in Israel, the period between winter and summer is very short, and soon it will be too hot to be outside. I enjoy this time while the air is still fresh, and the vision is clear for photography:)
I’m working on my next paintings, that will be related to the sea, a bit different from the woodland theme that takes my focus for some time. I’m exited to go to the new places of inspiration, still having nature and women as my muses. Stay updated to see what’s coming next! Of course I would love to hear what you think, and will be very happy if you would like to send me inspiration of any kind, related to the sea and to women in art.
I find my self painting all the time. These days starting to work on a new exhibition that will take place at the “Container” – From May 1st to 21st. Join me on Facebook to stay updated.
These magical large women combined with trees and whimsical landscapes, started to appear in my paintings after my baby girl was born, they have big colorful dresses, they may look pregnant, and there is something magical going on in their big bellies… I’m sure motherhood took over my creative mind, and I enjoy it so much! New images come to my mind the moment I close my eyes, I am very grateful for that. My red tree painting is also part of this big thing, the canvas prints reproduced from it seem to be a bestseller…
