Kseniia Boko, “Connection” March 27th – April 25th, 2020
Haven Gallery is pleased to present Ukranian based artist Kseniia Boko, for her second solo show at the gallery, entitled “Connection”. “Connection” consists of ten oil paintings and two drawings that embrace the kinship between her quintessential female sitters and the natural world. Boko particularly highlights the love and friendship between humans and the animal kingdom suggestive of a Mother Nature deity that is present within all of us. Her dreamy sense of light and wistful portraits echo an ascension of understanding and empathy merging two very different worlds together; perhaps bringing humanity to new levels of understanding and equality.
Boko’s palettes are dreamy, her sitters ethereal and her worlds betwixt and between. Sprites of light, stars, energy and magic, envelope her compositions and transport her contemporary deities from the earth bound to the empyreal. Each painting offers a poetic and painterly glimpse of an arcadian world beyond our earthly reveries.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
primarily in oil paints and creates fantastic pieces featuring mysterious female portraits with fragments of the natural world. She wants to show a harmonious coexistence between humans and nature.
Kseniia graduated from Kyiv National University of Construction and Architecture in 2013 and worked as an architect before serendipitously falling into the artworld.
