Thing of Itself

Thing of Itself

The Naked Room presents the first major solo show of Lucy Ivanova – one of the most ambitious and interesting young Ukrainian artists working in a media of painting. Lucy is a graduate of the National Art Academy and masters a mighty good old craft of brush and paint that the Ukrainian painting-centered visual culture is famous for. However, her oeuvre is so much far from the rigidness and traditionality of typical academic works, as she is able to speak contemporary issues through an “oil on canvas” format. The gallery curators Lizaveta German and Maria Lanko comment: "Everyday routine objects and situations turn appealingly enigmatic in Lucy’s semi-abstract, weird but sexy images. Her rich, flourishing canvases of a sensual, yet quite disturbing color palette of speak of a material reality we live in. Yet, we the viewers are not always capable to see this reality with the bare optics of our eyes. It is contemporary art that encourages us to decipher even the simplest signs around."
