“Petits Formats” 10 – 24 December
From 10 to 24 December, the yearly exhibition "Petits Formats" takes place in the Salle Saint-Esprit in Valbonne. A group of around 15 artists show their smaller work and sell it for very interesting prices: starting at 10€, the maximum is 250 €. Marina Kulik is one of the exhibiting artists. She will show poetic aquarelles, with high quality hand signed prints that can be used as exclusive Christmas cards.
"I am working on a series of "Christmas decorations" right now, it is great fun to do and I have really fallen in love with the concept of Xmas balls, they look so great, I may produce a couple of real ones. and definitely some big artistic handpainted beads for the Dutch jewelry brand Merrl that I design for. But I can't say for sure what I will end up with in December, I'll keep you posted. If you are interested in ordering a couple of cards, drop me an email via the contact page and I'll get back to you!"
Femmes du Monde
In the Terminal 1 and 2 business centers of Nice Aéroport, the exhibition “Femmes du Monde” can be admired. It is an interesting collection of paintings and sculptures by a heterogenuous group of artists with the same intriguing theme, known as "the woman"!
Three of the participating artists are related to the Pink Ribbon charity - they are Wim Teunissen, Fiona Biziou both painted one month in the Pink Ribbon calendar, as did Marina Kulik, who has painted several aquarelles in support of Pink Ribbon, the association helping women and men around the world in their fight against breast cancer
"For this exhibition, Nice Aéroport has chosen three of my « Pink Ribbon » portraits, picturing Amanda, Francien and Minou! They are on display on a prominent spot, with a couple of other portraits of women...
The exhibition is open until the 22d of October
Art Contemporain Valbonne II
Since Thursday 2 September I'm in the Salon d' Art Contemporain in Valbonne... It is an enormous collection of a large number of very different artists and galleries, local and international. There are several big tents and I am in the building together with my sculptor friend Patience (stand A20 - "Kulik & Devas"), with a very nice stand, showing a couple of MyDNA paintings, a "cell" and lots of "multicolour roses" in several sizes. And, a great advantage in the still hot South French weather, Airco! Yess... Sunday is the last day - we expect a lot of visitors - and sales.
And then on to the next one: "Aquarellistas in Provence"!
Exhibition in Rumania
From 12 August to 28 August, 6 paintings of Marina Kulik will be exhibited in "Galeria de Artă ”Cupola” in Iasi, during "The International Annual Holotropic Art Symposium" of 2010. The work is made especially for this exhibition, the 12 international artists that were chosen to participate, created their art on the music of Rumanian composer Edi Apostu.
"Edi's music is intriguing, etheric and unsettling at the same time and playing it while designing made me use other forms and shapes. I also wanted to work in a less transparent, more defined way that required another material - so I stepped back from aquarelle and used a mix of oil, acrylics and felt pen. The colours are much brighter and the shapes much sharper and more intense. I made one big painting on six smaller canvases and then found that they were all works in their own right, that are all telling their own story. So I decided to show and sell them seperately and if one is sold, I'll make a new one in it's place that will change the "whole" of six. And I'll keep track of that with my camera, so in the years it will hopefully develop into something completely different. It was a great, inspiring project and I learned tremendously from it..."
After the exhibit in Rumania the work will move to Italy. More news about that later! For more information on the Holotropic Art Symposium visit http://www.holotropic.eu/

On the cover!
Last month I was approached (via the website) by the editor of the Russian Real Estate Magazine "Homes collection": They found me through my website and asked if they could use one of my paintings - and (to make a long story short) of course they could, and it all worked out fine!
So in the June 2010 edition, an aquarelle by Marina Kulik is featured...
And not only that - the editorial mentions my "subtle mysterious and poetic" way of painting and there is a full page print with a rose on page 47... I don't really read Russian, but I can recognise certain words, and it looks great like this don't you think :) I am very proud and the good thing is also that I have now also joined them as an illustrator!!
