  • Sveta Rumak exhibition at The Green Barn

    The Green Barn is excited to showcase the beautifully evocative work of Russian artist. Sveta Rumak’s enigmatic work is a rich synthesis of her unique visual vocabulary with medieval Russian iconoclasm. The canvases are inhabited by humans and animals rendered in an earthy palette, set against very stylised but highly textured backgrounds.
