  • Marina Kalinovsky (bio)

I was born in the former Soviet Union. My father, a historian, was responsible for the restoration of a museum of archeology and history in the town of Poltava that had been destroyed during World War II.

The museum was our second home. This half-ruined enchanted place with Greek amphorae and medieval armor at hand probably still inspires many of my paintings. As each image has its reflection; one can peel them endlessly, layer by layer.

The paintings are provoked by combinations of colors, beauty in somebody’s movement, or a simple gesture. There is hidden magic in everyday life. The routine chores and gestures that have been performed by so many women so many times before have gained a certain eternity, and this is what I try to reflect in my paintings. [End Page 204]
