“Cobalt Wind”. Exhibition of painting by Ihor Badyak. March 12 – April 7, 2019.
The artist Ihor Badyak is an active participant of the plein airs (creative trips). They give him creative ideas for his paintings. Last summer he visited the town Les Issambres in the south of France. These places inspire each artist. There the French impressionists painted and the artists from all over the world go there.
Ihor saw the cobalt color everywhere. The royal blue colors of the sky and the sea and the mountains which are far away. It seemed that the air was saturated with that color and the wind carried it as the fragrance spread all over.
Ihor Badyak was saturated with that mood. He created a series of sketches and arrived to his native Lviv where have created about 20 works in which cobalt as the color is present almost everywhere.
In the main, the abstraction will be presented at the exhibition – a perfect painting deprived of a pack of objectivity and specificity. But there will be several landscapes.
The opening of the exhibition will take place on Tuesday, March 12 at 17.00
