From October 4-18, East West Fine Art at Mercato will present “Color Me Happy!” an exhibition of bright abstract florals by Russian artists Irina Nogina, Natalia Litosova, and Alexander Fyedorov. As gallery co-owner Leeza Arkhangelskaya notes, flowers have long been prevalent in Russian art and decor. “We can trace elaborate floral depictions in art to pre-Christian times in Russia,” she says. “These folk floral motifs are present in wood carvings, embroidery, and paintings on wood.” She adds that contemporary artists, like those in the exhibit, are eager to move beyond these traditions and the still-life imagery commonly associated with flowers.
