OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, April 23, 3-6PM
EXHIBIT: April 7 – June 5, 2022
“For me, whatever I paint, it is all about painting. And since the painting is the main subject and object, it is my main focus. That is when a chair is not really a chair, a rose is not actually a flower, and a face is not actually a person. I am left with painting time, space and emotion….
I think that presently my paintings remind me of ‘sonnets’ — conveying my admiration for life, art, beauty and enchantment in a format of a painting. I communicate my feelings and emotions in paint, its color and its plasticity. The way I am treating the surface — sometimes unsaid, sometimes undone — is an important part of each image. I try to make them as exciting and vibrant as I can in their seemingly repetitiveness. (How do you say ‘I love you’ in so many ways?)” Elena Zolotnitsky
