ART: ELLA KRUGLYANSKAYA

Ella Kruglyanskaya art artist painting

Latvian-born painter Ella Kruglyanskaya’s colorful work depicts curvy women steeped in their material excesses and affectations. The artist states an interest in “pictorial events that are not narrative but visual and sometimes aspire to an unspoken punch line.” Bounded by bulky lines and crosshatching, the women in Kruglyanskaya’s visual vignettes frequently look distressed and aggressive–or they lack a face entirely–as they engage in leisure activities or interact with other characters. Although the viewer is invited into voyeuristic gazes and the figures’ clothes and cleavage often take on a violent, sinister quality, the overall tone of the works is surreal and playful.
