art exhibition “Religion of Dreams” by Svetlana Fotin
Opening Reception and the meeting with artist: September 7, 2012, at 7:30 p.m.
Wine will be served.
Svetlana Fotin was born in Rostov-on-Don, in the South of Russia. She studied folk crafts of North Caucasus, the Scythian, Greek and Iranian culture in art of South Russia.
Svetlana Fotin’ art – painting on silk and suede does not derive from life; she does not take her models or subjects directly from reality and her work is not realistic. Instead she draws her images from her dreams.
Svetlana appeals to antiques and classical subjects as well as following and developing the rich traditions of Modernism. Her art presents a unique combination of the West and the East.
Centuries-long traditions of world art are developed by Svetlana Fotin in different, new historical perspective; this makes her an absolutely independent creative personality with special distinctive style. Since 1996 her personal exhibitions were held in Russia, Germany, Italy and France.
