Exhibition in Les Terrasses d’Antipolis
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/
Artour in Villeneuve
On June 19th Marina Kulik exhibited her abstract aquarelles and demonstrated the noble art of aquarelle during "ARTOUR" 2010 in the Citadelle of Villeneuve Loubet (property of the Marquis de Panisse)
The exhibition targeted the business people of Sophia Antipolis, the high-tech area of the Côte d'Azur, "our" Silicon Valley.
The participating artists had put up their artwork (paintings and sculptures) outside in the courtyard, the sun was shining and they were giving demonstrations and telling the interested visitors about their work...
