Russian Fairy Tales

Paintings by Ana Tzarev
Ana Tzarev Gallery, New York
08 December 2011 - 11 February 2012

The Ana Tzarev Gallery is pleased to exhibit a series of paintings by Ana Tzarev, inspired by the Russian fairy tales. To honour her Slavic heritage and the profound influence it has had on her art, Tzarev has followed in the tradition of renowned Russian artists Bilibin and Kandinsky and created her own contemporary rendition of the Russian fairy tales she grew up with. Inspired by these fantastical stories and the Palekh boxes she collects, Tzarev recreates these magical scenes from her childhood imagination. This new series captures the characters, scenes, and sentiment of stories that have been cherished for centuries.
