ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART  
by
3/31/20 Posted 3/5/09

         Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticity and abi... [more]

5/27/15 Posted 5/27/15

"If it commands attention, it's Culture. If it matches the sofa, it’s Art.” -- Artist Robert Williams So let us begin by paraphrasing those Coagula Bad Boys Walter Robinson, Mat Gleason and Charlie Finch with this review of the New Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City. Or, let’s say, like they do in L.A., 25 words or less – Fugly Building. Fugly Art. Crashing the Whitney on FREE day Saturday May 2, 2015 was as fun as it could be. Seein... [more]

Group Show at Superchief Gallery LA May 2nd - May 30th
Posted 5/26/15

Just off a street full of piñatas in DTLA is Superchief Gallery—the younger (but larger) sister of Superchief New York. I was here to see the Booty Worship exhibition, alone, because I couldn’t persuade any of my friends to come down and see a "butt" show with me. My friends have far more taste than I’d realized. I was greeted on arrival by pink curtain flaps resembling a lady’s spread legs. I got out of the taxi, and, conscious that the driver was watching me, sa... [more]

All came together beautifully in the end, and the FLUX Art Fair waxed luminous against a backdrop of higher profile art ev... [more]

Jewelry's Triumphant Return  
by
5/24/15 Posted 5/24/15

This season, I was inspired to take on a Trunk Show at The Studio Museum in Harlem. It would feature works from my (little-known, but once wildly popular) jewelry collection. Patrons and friends whom I've known for a very long time are familiar with this work; most newer friends know me as an artist, curator and writer, and have only seen the few jewelry pieces I wear everyday, almost like a uniform. I asked for and agreed to this show without realizing that it had been at least two years since I... [more]
