SHELEST.hotel and The Naked Room announce a new exhibition space on the territory of the protected recreation area with a personal exhibition by Lucy Ivanova.
Over the years SHELEST.hotel has amassed an impressive collection of works by Ukrainian artists. In addition, the countryside recreation complex is launching a regular programme in the new exhibition space with the curatorial assistance of The Naked Room, presenting works by the gallery's artists. And we decided to start with an exhibition of works by Lucy Ivanova created in 2019—2023.
Lucy's new paintings do not refer to a single theme or method. It is a random combination of what she has seen, felt, obtained and experienced.
Lucy herself defines her subject of interest in a bold way—it is a reality and its material features and boundaries. The artist outlines the limits of her everyday reality through images of simple objects, situations, obscured episodes of city life, the interior of her apartment and studio. These trivial things are dissolved in her semi-figurative canvases to become attractively enigmatic.
