A New York City preview of paintings by Levan Lagidze, one of Georgia's greatest living artists

About

​Lagidze's works are collected by leading museums, including Russia’s iconic Tretyakov Gallery and the Moscow Museum of Modern Art; Georgia’s National Picture Gallery, America’s Zimmerli Art Museum, and other major public and private collections worldwide. In October 2018 the Georgian Museum of Fine Arts in Tbilisi opened a new building with a hall dedicated to his work.

Georgia is an ancient land of inspiration, diversity, and artistic mastery. It is the home of Levan Lagidze.

Reflecting the cultural philosophy of Georgia, Lagidze looks deep beneath the surface to share experiences in harmony and gratitude, saying that “a relationship with painting is a participation in this infinite happy game.”

Taking inspiration from the spectacular landscapes and cityscapes of Georgia, Lagidze weaves with paint on canvas a tapestry of life experiences. Every inch of his canvases is a separate universe. The rhythm of Lagidze's gem-like colours invites you to pause, savouring the moment of discovery of hidden layers and textures. This spacing and rhythm is what links his compositions to Bach.

This is the first exhibition of Lagidze's artworks in the U.S.
