About this Exhibition
Erarta Galleries London is pleased to present The Light, the first solo show of Dina Bogusonova’s work in the UK. This talented, young, female artist returns to Erarta Galleries London having previously exhibited as part of the Spectra exhibition in 2014.
Bogusonova is well known for her expressive use of tone and movement in her skyscapes and translates this style into her new series of oil paintings inspired by delicate blossoms. Her work conveys a natural femininity through flowing form and shape as well as colour, beckoning the viewer into the fantastical world. Her typical brushwork is spontaneous, capturing intricate details in her attention to tonal variation. Her dedication to the nuances of light in sunrises, sunsets, and natural prisms create unique pieces of artwork representing singular moments in time.
She paints only with oil, layering and applying a thin glaze to really play with nuances of this medium. These transparent layers of colour give her paintings the appearance of great depth, regardless of subject. The main purpose of her artworks is to show unity between depth and transparency. It is this dichotomy that she sees as integral to femininity, and plays with the cultural semantics of floristry as representations of purity, chastity, and even mysticism.
Her expressionist approach to her subject matter, be it sunsets, skyscapes or flowers, lend perfectly to this technique. She effortlessly captures the rich hues that the setting sun creates in the sky, with the delicate playfulness of a watercolour and the striking palette of a powerful oil painting.
Dina Bogusonova’s art is overarched by a natural power, as though connecting her works to the universal female subconscious, revealing the very essence of a woman’s varied nature. Her canvases embody sensuality and sincerity, with a very personal nod to the hippie philosophy.
