Kseniia Boko, “Visions”
July 11th – August 9th, 2020
Haven Gallery is pleased to present Ukranian based artist Kseniia Boko, for her first solo show at the gallery, entitled “Visions”. “Visions” consists of 6 new oil paintings that embody her love of everything magical and mysterious. Boko’s lush and enchanting oil work provides the opportunity to delve into the world of dreams and imagination, which is divinely illustrated through her use of the female form and natural world.
The artist reflects:
“You will fall into a mysterious place where live charming feminine imagery is adorned by flowers, butterflies, and birds. They are filled with secrets that seem to fill the very air of this world. I want my paintings to give the viewer a little fairy tale and to remind them of the beauty around us, and the harmony of the natural world.”
Boko’s palettes are dreamy, her sitters ethereal and her worlds betwixt and between. Sprites of light, stars, energy and magic, envelope her compositions and transport her contemporary deities from the earth bound to the empyreal. Each painting offers a poetic and painterly glimpse of an arcadian world beyond our earthly reveries.
