Wanderlust: Painting a World of InspirationAna Tzarev Gallery, New York
10 May - 21 July 2012
Wanderlust: Painting a World of Inspiration showcases paintings from the impressive oeuvre of Ana Tzarev inspired by her travels across the globe. Tzarev strives to learn all about the far flung locations she experiences in her grand journeys. Her ever-present curiosity manifests itself in colourful, vibrant paintings that capture the lives and landscapes she has encountered.
Travel and culture have both been essential sources of inspiration for Tzarev throughout her career. She spent the early portion of her career as a textile designer in New Zealand, travelling extensively to Japan and neighbouring Southeast Asia to source traditional prints and materials for her popular and successful fabric designs. As Tzarev continued to discover and learn more about the world, she ventured further, travelling to locations such as Thailand, Italy, Hawaii, and Mali, continuously absorbing the rich landscapes and patterns of daily life that define a culture’s singularity.
“I have visited many wondrous places in the world but it is the people I remember, their kindness and joy in sharing the history of the land and the story of their lives."
