  • Sveta Rumak exhibition at The Green Barn

    published in Sculptures, Events, Exhibitions, Videos, Art

    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. Like medieval Orthodox icons, her people have enlarged almond eyes with an otherworldly cast and long straight noses. The elongated figures seem weightless, and float in a spiritual atmosphere of spacelessness, without mass or shadow-casting volume. Also typical of icons, Rumak juxtaposes flat figures in ornately patterned garments with more fully modelled heads.
