    Dates: Feb. 28, 2019 - March 13, 2019

    Venue: Stages of Life, Harrow Arts Centre, London, UK

    In this immersive visual art experience, the audience is taken on a journey through the ‘Stages of life’. A contemporary exhibition exploring a personal understanding of the subject of life, growth, aging and death. Resulting in various literal, as well as conceptual, interpretations of this theme.

    This cutting edge exhibition is set in the beautiful grounds of Harrow Arts Centre, an old travellers school dating back to the 1850’s, offering images of something out of the Harry Potter world.

    Amongst others, alumni and students from The Royal College of Art and Central Saint Martins are taking over HAC to challenge one’s experience of a traditional art show and tackle the subject of life itself. Curated by Anna Kolosova & Steffania Zoledowska

    Accompanied by Ryoko Minamatani from Japan and Dariya Afanaseva from Russia, this much anticipated free admission exhibition will be open at 44AD artspace in central Bath from 21 - 26 August 2018.

    Press Release:
    What appear to be breaks of color in Dariya Afanaseva’s paintings cultivate curiosity in the works. In some instances, these lapses in color are quite fascinatingly deliberate sections in which the artist purposefully does not add a layer of paint over the foundation of mixed media. These non-painted surfaces take unique shapes like ovals or butterflies. In other instances, the lack of color is actually a switch to a contrasting color. Rusty orange and sea-foam stripes interrupt gregarious planks of black, or violet and sea foam seem to be scraped at until precarious white lines emerge. It’s likely, however, the artist added these colors rather than subtracted other colors from the canvas. Layers therefore become pertinent to Afanaseva’s methodology and style...
