Artfinder selects Svetlana Bogatcheva
Svetlana Bogatcheva is a self-taught multidisciplinary artist originally born in St.Petersburg, Russia in 1986. She now lives and works in Finland and has previously exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. The experimental nature of Svetlana's one-of-a-kind sculptures - created using materials such as rope, plaster, lentils, nylon, latex and paint - really caught our eye.
On coming to ARTROOMS 2017, Svetlana said:
**"I am very happy to have the opportunity to be a part of ARTROOMS 2017 and to show my work within such beautiful interiors. I will present pieces from a body of work titled Mother Creator, which I completed after the birth of my son, River.
These pieces examine the role of the woman today and throughout human evolution, as well as within an imagining a world in which women are central to society and celebrated for being the creators of life itself and everything worth living for.
I look forward to seeing you there!"**
Artfinder selects Brian Huber
Based in the US, Brian Huber's work plays on the abstraction of landscapes, architectural elements and the impact of man on the natural world. Raised in New Orleans, Brian was influenced not only by an unconstrained culture and the rhythmic motions of blues and jazz, but also an environment where hurricanes could change or destroy everything in minutes. We spoke to Brian about what to expect in his space this year:
**"At ARTROOMS 2017 I will be presenting new work from two series. As part of my process I cut and manipulate giant sheets of acrylic paint to create the distinctively sculptural texture of the pieces. The constant change of light and shadow alters the color and pattern of the work, breathing life into them.
My Braided series of paintings are an abstracted interpretation of the white braided rivers and glacial moraines of the Denali Alaska landscape. Contrasting pieces in the series explore the energy that resides and bursts forth from a seemingly barren landscape.
The Circle Back series was originally inspired by the light and shadow filtered through wrought ironwork that can be found throughout my hometown New Orleans. The pattern on each piece is a continuation of an earlier series that discussed the hidden veil we all wear and how it distorts our views and alters the way we consume reality."**
