Join us for the opening reception of Oksana Prokopenko: Exhibition of Mosaic Icons and Paintings on Thursday, December 15th, at 6 pm
Oksana Prokopenko’s works have been acquired into the permanent collections of museums in the USA and Italy. She has been featured on the Russian international TV network, NTV-America, radio, and numerous publications. To quote Margo Grant, the Museum of Russian Art’s director, “The soul of Prokopenko’s work is in her walking that fine line between the transcendent and the ordinary. Prokopenko has achieved sheer brilliance in her deft treatment of the tiny peices in her micro-mosaics. What’s more is that it is done with a rainbow of majestic colors. ”
Prokopenko is a rarity in today’s contemporary art scene. Her focus on detail is akin to that of artists that worked hundreds of years ago. Often described as a colorist, her colors inspire the viewer to spiritual and emotional heights similar to those felt by Prokopenko during her creative process. You are cordially invited to the opening of an exhibit of mosaic icons created in the tradition of Byzantine masters. Fashioned from tiny bits of glass fit together to bring forth a divine image, the icons are created by Oksana Prokopenko, a Ukrainian artist, now living New York.
Come see and feel the magic.
