TVAA’s 2017 Abstract Redacted Reception May 7

May-TVAAA-Gallery-Poster1-471x600

May 1 – 31, 2017
Reception Sunday, May 7, 2-4 pm

The website for the TATE informs us that abstract ” means to separate or withdraw something from something else. Abstract art is art which is not representational, it could be based on a subject or may have no source at all in the external world.”

When sensitive information is removed or obscured from a document before it is published, it is said to have been redacted. In writing, this is a form of editing.

In this exhibit, we hope to show your abstract work with some redaction. You are the creator and must decide how that occurs. Will you use text which you conceal? Will you have an area in your piece that has had some content removed? Will a sculpture obviously show us a missing part? Perhaps the way you portray this idea will be more subjective. Perhaps it will be very literal. Subtle or not, you decide! All media welcome.

Shipshape and Fleeting

Print media, works on paper, and installation exploring the space between gloom and joy.
Dream Juice
Lindsey Larsen
 
Dream Juice is a contemplation of things in nature, like humans and all the other physical things… but also things that aren’t physical, like an experience, maybe? I mean experience with a capital E.
Abyss
Ashley Whitt
 
Abyss explores the dichotomy between order and chaos within the universe and within the self. Photographic collages and sculptural artist books are fabricated to illustrate the physical manifestations of anxiety and depression through the deconstruction of the photographic image.
Collages are made using a combination of alternative processes; lumen prints, chemigrams, and solvent transfers. To create the images, photographic prints are cut apart and sewn back together. Geometric and organic shapes mimic the patterns and phenomenons found within the universe. Abyss considers the correlation between the inner self and outer space as well as our desires to control and make sense of life and death.

Kelli Vance, Sappers and Miners, 2017, oil on canvas, 78 x 90 inches

EXHIBITION DATES

May 13th – June 17th

OPENING RECEPTION 

Saturday, May 13th

from 5 – 8pm

Kelli Vance
We Provide Our Best Offering to the Universe
2017, oil on canvas, 60 x 36 inches

Cris Worley Fine Arts is proud to present Sappers and Miners, our second solo exhibition with Kelli Vance, opening with an artist’s reception on Saturday, May 13th from 5 – 8 pm.
Sappers and Miners will include a series of large-scale paintings produced in oil on canvas. The exhibition will be on view through June 17, 2017.
Kelli Vance is known for her photorealistic paintings, which explore psychologically thrilling themes from voyeurism to assumed identity. Her work is primarily driven by complex narratives surrounding socially constructed notions of femininity that romanticize alternative forms of beauty.
Working from staged photographs, Vance enhances tension in the subjects of her chosen models through her painterly play with light and textures including hair, rope, cake icing, and wet skin. She muffles provocative shouts existing within her compositions by depicting only portions of their narratives, keeping actions hinted by the titles relegated outside the frame.
In the recent work of Sappers and Miners, Vance suspends her depictions of female figures in tantalizing situations, in favor of subdued rituals. An arsenal of occult magic follows her figures in We Provide Our Best Offering to the Universe (2016) and Sun Eaters (2016) as they attempt to locate their locus of control in preparation for psychological battle. This sublime search for power is echoed by a palette of black and white, erasing any evidence of opulence from Vance’s earlier cinematic scenes. These new works summon viewers to seek serenity when reality becomes chaotic.
Kelli Vance was born in Garland, Texas receiving her BFA from the University of North Texas in 2005 and her MFA from the University of Houston in 2008. She was included in the 2009 Texas Biennale, in 2014 she was a finalist for the Hunting Art Prize, and in 2017 she received a Houston Arts Alliance Individual Artist Grant. Vance’s work has been shown widely across Texas as well as in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New Mexico.

Cris Worley Fine Arts is located at: 1845 Levee Street # 110, Dallas, TX 75207
Gallery Hours are Tuesday – Saturday from 11am – 5pm and by appointment.

Many Hats/One Head – The Accidental Curator

Robert Storr is a painter who supported himself by sheetrocking, carpentry, and house painting, along with occasional art writing, when in 1990, with only an MFA in studio art, Storr was picked out of the chorus line by the newly appointed Kirk Varnedoe, Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, to be a curator in that same department. What followed was an eventful twelve-year run at MoMA, with his tenure ending as Senior Curator. Then there was a stint as the first Rosalie Solow Professor of Modern Art at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, as well as the overall directorship of the 2007 Venice Biennale, making Storr the first and, thus far, only US-born curator chosen for this role in the 112-year-old exhibition. All of this was followed by the deanship of the Yale University School of Art.
Still a professor of painting at Yale, for this Tuesday Evenings presentation Storr talks about learning on the job as a way of life during a period of extraordinarily complex, rapid, and far-flung changes in the “art world” — now a polycentric, culturally diverse, and ever-morphing economic and politic alternate reality — as well as the abiding values that draw people to art and into an “art community” primarily inhabited by makers of various kinds.
Robert Storr lives and works in New York. In addition to his posts at The Museum of Modern Art, New York University, Yale University School of Art, and his role as director of the 52nd Venice Biennale, Storr has curated and published catalogues for numerous exhibitions, including monographic shows on Elizabeth Murray, Gerhard Richter, Tony Smith, and Robert Ryman. In April 2016, Storr was awarded the insignia of Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Ambassador to the US. As a renowned author and critic, he has been a contributing editor at
Art in America since 1981 and regularly contributes to exhibition catalogues and art publications such as ArtForum, Frieze, Parkett, Corriere della Sera (Milan), and Art Press.His most recent publication, Intimate Geometries: The Work and Life of Louise Bourgeois, was released on February 15, 2017.

Ambreen Butt, Pia Camil and Keer Tanchak Exhibits at the Dallas Contemporary

DallasContemporaryButtCamilTanchak

8 APRIL – 20 AUGUST 2017

AMBREEN BUTT

What is left me

Ambreen Butt’s What is left of me addresses current political oppression and violence globally through large-scale resin installations and collage-based works. The creation of each piece is labor intensive and built upon meditative repetitive forms. Butt studied traditional Indian and Persian miniature painting at the National College of Art in Lahore and has built a unique visual language based upon that training.

PIA CAMIL

Bara, Bara, Bara

Through a wide variety of media ranging from installation to performance and ceramics, Pia Camil explores themes of art history, consumerism and the Mexican urban landscape. Investigating urban ruin through interpretations of abandoned billboards, dollar stores, and iconic works of art, Camil addresses the aesthetic language of modernism and its relationship to retail and advertising.

KEER TANCHAK

Soft Orbit

Keer Tanchak’s site-specific exhibition embodies the idea of time travel through art history and focuses on the last two years of the artist’s studio practice. Tanchak’s approach to painting demonstrates how the medium is always operating in a web of tradition and cultural references. The exhibition serves as a metaphorical X-ray machine that exposes the building block of the language of painting: brushwork, color, and light.

Blue Library Vol 2: Conversations
Curated by Kalee Appleton
Tammy Mercure’s project, Blue Library Vol 2: Conversations, consists of collaborative, visual exchanges between coupled photographers in the form of photobooks.  Each book, a result of a photographer’s responses to the imagery of another photographer, is a compilation of visual narrative that creates connections between work and gives a new life to the original photographs.
Participating photographers:

Courtney Asztalos & Nydia Blas, Jessica Dean Camp & Cole Don Kelley, Angela Deane & Alisson Bittiker, Lee Deigaard & Elizabeth Stone, Hobbes Ginsberg & Andi Icaza, Michelle Groskopf & Alexander Coggin, Janna Ireland & Morgan Rachel Levy, Natalie Krick & Lissa Rivera, Ian Lewandowski & Caiti Borruso, Juan Madrid & Maggie Stockman, Ross Mantle & Chris Maggio, Noelle McCleaf & Michael McCraw, Zora Murff & Rana Young, Amy Lynn Powell & Maddie McGarvey, Tamara Reynolds & Matthew Genitempo, David Soffa & Liz Calvi, Sasha Tivetsky & Melissa Spitz, and Tara Wray & Carrie Elizabeth Thompson.

object/non-object
Kelsey Heimerman and Sammy Rat Rios
Curated by Seth Lorenz
 
Two women, lots of color and two ways of seeing the world.
Kelsey Heimerman is an objective painter that mainly paints “figures (that) are her metaphorical haystacks and they reflect our contemporary world. Using distortion, engorged layers of firm, deliberate and bleeding paint become objectified as they describe flesh, spaces, animals and a codex of modern iconography.As a seeker of knowledge and a person people are drawn to, Heimerman strives to become a part of the American female narrative. Influenced by Frida Kahlo, Keith Haring, Henry Darger, Hemonous Boch, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and Rosson Crow she continues diligently Project people projecting visions of a dreamlike futuristic world where all people are accepted.”
Sammy Rat Rios is a multifaceted Dallas artist, she is a musician, actress, and painter to name a few. Although her main focus is her music, her paintings are wonderful non-objective examples of her personal aesthetic. Everything she does, whether it be painting, singing, acting, or walking down the street, she does with a grace and style quite unique to herself. She is drawn to color, design, and clean simple aesthetics and she expresses these magnetisms boldly in her paintings.

Amélie Ducommun is a French-Swiss artist who lives and works in Barcelona. She was born in 1983 and graduated from Les Arts Décoratifs, Paris (ENSAD) and the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona. Ducommun’s striking paintings attempt to harness both the beauty and energy of natural landscapes. A seasoned traveler, the artist draws her creative inspiration from discovering new panoramas and exploring unfamiliar geographies. Much of her work focuses on the temporality and subjectivity of memory, foregrounding questions of perception and emotion,as well as the interrelation between natural elements. For Ducommun, truth can be found in first impressions, the fleeting moment when unfamiliarity compels a focus on emotional candor and unbiased observation.

Ducommun has participated in more than 60 exhibitions internationally, including Dak’art, and the Beijing Contemporary Art Biennale, and was silver medalist at the 9th painting games of the Francophonie in Nice.  We are honored to represent Amelie Ducommun at WALL Gallery and invite you to this solo exhibition on view through May 12, 2017.

Howard Sherman: Shifting Fancy of the Crowd opening April 1st at Circuit12

CIRCUIT12 CONTEMPORARY

C12 PRESENTS A SOLO EXHIBITION
SHIFTING FANCY OF THE CROWD // WORKS BY HOWARD SHERMAN
ARTIST RECEPTION 01 APRIL 2017 | 6-9 PM
(ARTIST WILL BE IN ATTENDANCE)ON VIEW 25 MARCH – 6 MAY 2017

CIRCUIT 12 CONTEMPORARY, 1811 E. LEVEE ST, DALLAS TX, 75207

Howard Sherman received his Masters of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing from the University of North Texas in 2006. During his tenure at UNT, Sherman was fortunate enough to work with esteemed professor Vernon Fisher before Fisher’s retirement. It was during this time that the artist discovered and defined a visual language that has continued to evolve.

Sherman has been leading a new generation of bombastic contemporary painters in the Texas art world. His typically human-scale canvases carry traces of his background in cartooning, offsetting the loud, raw power of his aggressive paint strokes with a playful sense of humor. In contrast, the artist’s smaller works on paper reveal his intuitive use of material in a distilled, yet still assertive manner.
The large paintings facilitate the immense physicality within Sherman’s work, while leaving space for his keen sense of formal resolution. The frenetic and muscular heft of his work is balanced with a measured precision and a thoughtful integration of a number of historical art history influences. Sherman’s cartoonish figuration complements his bold use of abstract mark making which can be construed as portraits, punch lines or poems. He is constantly refining his visual and conceptual vocabulary, recently experimenting with sculptural surfaces and collage.

Only two years after completing his M.F.A., Sherman was featured in a solo traveling exhibition originating at the Art Museum of Southeast Texas. His work is in several museum collections and is on permanent display at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas. The artist has been profiled numerous times in New American Paintings, appears in the 2010 book Texas Artists Today and was chosen for the cover of the recently released art history book Texas Abstract: Modern/Contemporary by Michael Paglia and Jim Edwards. Rice University is now collecting his personal artifacts for its research center.
In addition to his many accomplishments, Sherman continues to further his craft and studies. He has been awarded residencies at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, School of Visual Arts, the McColl Center for Visual Art, Vermont Studio Center, Jentel Artist Residency Program and the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation.
Sherman has been in a number of solo exhibitions across the United States, and his work has been featured in group exhibitions in Texas, California, New York, Florida, Spain, India and Peru.
Sherman lives and works in Houston and New York City.

A Priori Painting Exhibition: Jim Lively opening April 22 at Martsolf Lively

A Fresh Start

Martsolf Lively Contemporary

521 N. Interurban, Richardson, Texas 75081

presents

A Priori Series of Paintings

by Jim Lively

April 22, 2017 – July 22, 2017

Opening Reception: Saturday, April 22, 2017, 6 to 9pm

http://www.jimlivelyart.com/home

Fashion designer, Paulette Martsolf and artist, Jim Lively brought their creative talents together to create an innovative concept of merging unique and original fashion with contemporary visual art. The concept gave birth to the endeavor known as “Allie – Coosh Lifestyle” and “Martsolf Lively Contemporary” where fashion gracefully and seamlessly collides with fine art. Previously, Paulette owned Allie-Coosh which featured her own creative fashion for twenty-four years located in Snider Plaza. Due to escalating rent, she decided to renovate the building she owned near downtown Richardson which housed her manufacturing. The renovations resulted in an industrial chic venue which now houses both her manufacturing, a fashion boutique, art gallery and artist studio.

Customed TailoredAs the renovations began to unfold, Jim contemplated as to what might be an appropriate theme for a series of paintings to christen the new venue. After some thought, he kept being drawn back to his days in college where he had the luxury of studying philosophy. Jim was always intrigued by the concept of a priori which may be defined as relating to or denoting reasoning or knowledge that proceeds from theoretical deduction rather than from observation or experience.

The first painting in this series is entitled “Fresh Start” which is an abstract piece that incorporates imaginary asymmetrical shapes into what appear to be wood grain slats. By its title, the painting is not dependent upon past experience but instead is forward looking and intended to be somewhat unique. Several of the pieces in the series such as the whimsically titled “Little Black Dress” embraces the theme of the Allie – Coosh Lifestyle and Martsolf Lively Contemporary of where fashion collides with art.

Jack Whitten: Earlier Works at Bivins Gallery

Jack Whitten

Bivins Gallery is pleased to present Jack Whitten: Earlier Works from April 1-May 6, 2017.

Created during a five-year period in the late 1960s, the paintings and works on paper featured in Jack Whitten: Earlier Works reference race, cosmology, music, and politics. Influenced by personal relationships with Willem de Kooning, Martin Luther King, Jr., Miles Davis, Philip Guston, and Franz Kline, the abstractions reflect the social and political turmoil of the era. The conversation will be joined by Dallas’s own local artist Spencer Evans, whose work references issues of identity and image in the black community. Please join us at the opening reception on April 1 from 5 pm – 8pm, at the gallery’s Uptown location, to continue the dialogue. Bivins Gallery is located at 300 Crescent Court, Suite 100,Dallas, TX 75201. http://www.bivinsgallery.com/ Please contact anna@bivinsgallery.com for more details.

CADD Announces 2017 CADD FUNd Winner: Spencer Evans

caddfund

Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas
Announce
2017 CADD FUNd Winner
Spencer Evans 
MFA Candidate-Intermedia
University of Texas at Arlington

spencerevansContemporary Art Dealers of Dallas celebrated creativity and community with a Sunday Soup Supper on March 5th. CADD FUNd 2017 was awarded to Spencer Evans in the amount of $5000.
During the event finalists presented proposals about potential artistic projects. It was a fun evening sharing innovative ideas. The other finalists included; Justin Archer/UNT, Jessie Barnes/UNT, Dannie Liebergot/UNT, Juan Negroni/SMU, and Diego Romo/UNT.
Finalists were selected by  jurors including; Anna Smith, Curator of Education, Nasher Sculpture Center; Sue Canterbury, The Pauline Gill Sullivan Associate Curator of American Art, Dallas Museum of Art; and Dr. Rodger Kobes, art collector and enthusiast.
The 2017 CADD FUNd will aid Spencer Evans in traveling to Lagos, Nigeria to conduct research on differences

between Black American and Nigerian/African identity. He has been invited to conduct his research by the President of the Nigerian Baptist Theological Seminary, Dr. Emiola Nihinlola and the Vice Chancellor of Bowen University, Dr. Matthews Ojo. These invitations  include participating schools:  University of Lagos (Lagos), University if Ibadan (Ibadan), Bowen University (Iwo), and Nigerian Baptist Theological  Seminary (Ogbomoso). Evans will live among Nigerian students to develop a clear and direct understanding of their lives, mindsets, and sense of self.  He will hold and record group discussions and interviews regarding the social conditioning that shaped their sense of identity and how it differs from the millions of African descendants living in the U.S.

Traveling to Nigeria is crucial to his research because he recently learned that his mother’s paternal ancestry is from Nigeria and Cameroon. Also crucial are the conversations he has had with his Nigerian friends regarding a perception-rooted rift between Africans and Black Americans. He plans to gain further insight from interviews, discussions, and daily interactions with his Nigerian brothers and sisters.

Photography, drawing, and painting will be components of his research in Nigeria. He plans to show his appreciation by donating a work of art to each of the universities participating.

OKCMOA is proud to present Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic on view summer 2017.

These figurative canvases of African-American men, inspired by Wiley’s observation of street life in Harlem, mark the beginning of his focused exploration of the male figure.

Contextual Assembly opening Feb. 23 at Kettle Art

Contextual_Assembly_square

Kettle Art proudly presents ‘Contextual Assembly’ a group exhibit featuring new works by Corey Godfrey, Hilda Lafleur, Roberta Masciarelli, and Amy Seymour.

From Corey’s soft, yarn focus on stones, to Hilda’s psychedelic imagery, to Roberta’s recycled constructions, to Amy’s imaginative world of clay, these four artists are united in whimsical, dream-like realities. This exhibit opens on Thursday, February 23, 2017, from 7:00-10:00pm, and runs through Saturday, March 18.

Kettle Art Gallery Deep in the Art of Ellum
2650-B Main Street  Dallas, TX 75226 www.kettleart.com

Roberta_Masciarelli_Animal_Condo

Corey Godfrey is a Texas-based artist whose past works have focused primarily on women as subject matter, utilizing yarn as her medium, a material traditionally associated with them. In her current series, Corey is inspired by stones found in nature that exemplify beauty, strength, and a profound sense of femininity. Corey holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from North Texas State University.

Roberta Masciarelli  is a Brazilian-born visual artist based in Dallas for the past eighteen years. Her art consists of sculptures, or constructions, created from found objects and materials, such as metal hardware. Having been a full-time artist for approximately ten years, Roberta has participated in art events within the US including Dallas, Washington DC, Santa Fe, Sedona, and New York. Internationally, she has exhibited in collective exhibits in England, Holland, Denmark, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, South Africa, New Zealand, Bosnia, Japan, Italy, and India. She earned a Bachelor of Architecture from Mackenzie University, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

HIlda Lafleur is a self-taught, Texas-born-and-bred artist. Hilda’s unique eye for color produces upbeat paintings inspired by frequent trips throughout Europe, further influenced by a life spent in Dallas during the turbulent sixties, seventies, and beyond. Her works are created on hand made canvas and painted with a unique concoction of acrylic paint and secret ingredients.

Amy Seymour is a Dallas native who has been creating art, sculpture, and photography for approximately twenty years. Amy’s work depicts a playful and mischievous vision from a dreamy realm within her subconscious view of the world around us.

Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas Present

CADD FUNd 2017

Sunday, March 5th, 5:00 – 7:30 pm

3015 AT TRINITY GROVES
3015 Gulden Lane

Dallas, Texas 75212

Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas will again celebrate creativity and community with a Sunday Soup Supper on March 5th at 3015 at Trinity Groves. CADD FUNd 2017 will be a fun, fast-paced evening of sharing innovative ideas about potential artistic projects. CADD FUNd 2017 will make possible a high-impact idea that needs the support of the DFW arts community.

The idea for the annual CADD FUNd was inspired by similar events throughout the United States such as Feast in Brooklyn, Incubate in Chicago and Spread in Santa Fe. Over the past several years, numerous organizations have taken the basic premise of a Sunday soup dinner – collect creative proposals, invite the public to pay, eat, and listen, and then democratically vote for a winner – and adapted it to their own local purposes.

This year’s CADD FUNd finalists were selected by three esteemed jurors including; Anna Smith, Curator of Education, Nasher Sculpture Center; Sue Canterbury, The Pauline Gill Sullivan Associate Curator of American Art, Dallas Museum of Art; and Dr. Rodger Kobes, art collector and enthusiast.

The six finalists are: Justin Archer/UNT, Jessie Barnes/UNT, Spencer Evans/UTA, Dannie Liebergot/UNT, Juan Negroni/SMU, and Diego Romo/UNT.

During the event on March 5th, the finalists will present short proposals for original and yet-to-be-realized new projects. Members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions and then the audience participants will vote for their favorite project. After a short recess to tally the votes, the winner of CADD FUNd 2017 will be announced!

The CADD FUNd is $2500 – $7500 + and beyond. Funds are raised by ticket sales and will go to the winner chosen by the audience. Tickets are $40 per person and are on sale now. Tickets will not be available at the door. In an effort to make CADD FUNd 2017 as accessible as possible for the students and artists, $10 of each ticket sold will be applied to jurors’ fees and administrative costs in lieu of charging application fees.

The 2015 CADD FUNd was awarded to Rachel Rushing for her project- Sunset Art Studios: An Oak Cliff artist run studio and exhibition space. Named for the former Sunset Streetcar Line, Sunset Art Studios is a culturally invested art space. A group of local artists develop their work while providing the surrounding community opportunities to directly engage in the process of art. Ms. Rushing will give a short presentation at the event about her project, Sunset Art Studios.

RESERVE YOUR SEAT TO VOTE – BUY YOUR TICKET TODAY! 

While CADD FUNd is about raising much-needed cash, we hope that it will also be a forum to discuss the many other needs and resources that help make projects happen.

GISA ELWAZIR DIPTYCH: A DIVIDED LAND (SCAPE)

GisaElwazirProtecting the Land

February 9 – March 4, 2017
Opening Reception:  Saturday, February 11, 5-8 pm
Haley-Henman Gallery at Gallery 422422 Singleton Boulevard, Dallas, Texas 75212 

Gisa Elwazir’s fourth solo exhibition at Haley-Henman

DALLAS, Texas (January 10, 2017)–Haley-Henman proudly announces Gisa Elwazir’s solo exhibition of new paintings titled Diptych:  A Divided Land (Scape).  The exhibition opens on Thursday, February 9th and continues until March 4th. An opening reception with the artist is Saturday, February 11th from 5-8 pm.

Gisa Elwazir is at her most complex expression of her leitmotif, organic abstraction.  This is her fourth solo exhibition of new paintings in this collection.   Haley-Henman is honored to be the premier venue of her new works that continually receive awards in juried competitions.

At the foundation of all these works is her medium of decalcomania, whereby she makes a texture of paint applied to the paper, like putting on a decal.  It is from this texture that the artist begins her creative process.  Decalcomania begins the rich layering of saturated colors, stippled transparencies of color, and the unfolding of spaces and forms.

For this exhibition, the viewer encounters the majority of works as diptychs in which the artist intentionally keeps a space between two continguous panels.  When a viewer approaches Gisa Elwazir’s paintings, there is an overall sense that something is happening.  The visual sense is assaulted with color interwoven by dynamic patterns of action.  These paintings are not static abstractions, nor are they static land (scapes).  As the viewer gets closer to the work, there is an increased visual experience of seeing stunning detail, with occasional plays of figurative and landscape references where the inner worlds of imagination come to life, and where the viewer can give their own meaning to the artist’s suggestions.

LuminArte Fine Art Gallery Presents: “Faces of the Earth” – Albena Hristova Feb. 17

Hristova2

LuminArte Fine Art Gallery presents: Exhibition “Faces of the Earth” February, 17-May 6th, 2017
“Faces of the Earth” is a collection of up close and personal observations of Natural Beauty unto the Eyes of the Beholder – Artist Albena Hristova.

“The Faces of the Earth” 
Exhibition – February 17th -May 6th 2017
Opening Exhibition (Meet and Greet) –  February 17th, 7-10:00pm

Featured Artist: International artist, Albena Hristova born and raised behind the Iron Curtain .

Gold Phoenix – Oil on Canvas
“For me everything starts with seeing, nothing rings more true to me than the eye of the beholder”.  Hristova examines the beauty and grandeur of Mother Nature through highly textured surfaces detailing a wide range of light and dark variances form dusk to dawn; inviting the viewer to make their own discoveries in these close encounters with the Earth.

Globally successful and acclaimed artist, Albena Hristova, was born and raised behind the Iron Curtain in Bulgaria. Her first influence was her mother, who at the time was the leading restorer of the Bulgarian National Gallery in Sophia. Following in her mentor’s footsteps, she started painting at an extremely young age and went on to complete 12 years of classical art education, as well as a Masters in Mural Painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Sofia.
