Yaryna Movchan “Immersion”. 27.08 – 22.09. 2019
Intuitive artist Yaryna Movchan draws timeless and extra-portraiture images of a person. Placed in a circle – the symbolic geometric figure of the soul and the auras, the full faces, without a directional gaze – these are portraits of intimate self-immersion into inner feelings and states. Images of her own melancholy, fears, fatigue, inspiration, exaltation, conceit, etc. For example – The guy with the seal of a palm branch on his mouth – is “in glory”, a man with a penetrating gold fish into – became a gate of the “spirit”, and the confused man with a ball of red lines in hands – tangles himself more and more… Yaryna’s creativity and her iconic faces are similar to streaming poetry. It is not an instruction. It does not need to be read literally. Even the artist does not explain them. It is only a sensual immersion in imaginative associations and meanings that they impact. Yaryna Movchan will present about 20 new works at her personal exhibition at the “Green Sofa” Art Gallery. They made in the technique of levkas (gesso) on the board during the last year. The greater part of which will be presented to public for the first time.
