Galyna Moskvitina Exhibition
An exhibition of works by Ukrainian born artist Galyna Moskvitina will be on show this November at the newly opened Hay Hill Gallery. Featuring the Laternative Realism style founded by the artist herself, this collection is the radiant result of Moskvitina's 15 year immersion into Eastern Philosophy and explores representations of a higher state of being.
As one of the best graphic artists in the Ukraine, Moskvitina was the first to illustrate Bulgakov's literary masterpiece The Master and Margarita, and perhaps its magical realism was an inspiration for her later works. She later withdrew from the art world to explore her own spiritual path and returned over a decade afterwards with a series of remarkable Svetangs ('Light anchors'). These aesthetically beautiful works are balanced perfectly between the visible and invisible, lending the spectator visions of her own heightened awareness.
Entering the light-filled glass-walled space of Hay Hill Gallery is like stepping through Alice's mirror into a strange world existing directly parallel to ours. This is an eye-opening show that illuminates the anxious feeling of being at odds with ourselves and the world around us, offering a shimmering glimpse of wholeness, reminding us of something other that is already deeply known by our innermost selves.
