MOVCHAN

Paintings with a touch of magical realism

Stacks Image 4594

Yanina Movchan sublime mastery of the technique and structure of Renaissance painting combines with the instinctive symbolism of “magical realism” to create a personal neo-realist idiom.

Her work is formal, yet playful; contemporary, yet timeless; and joyous, yet mysterious, evocative and dreamlike. In Yana’s paintings, the intellectual and the emotional synthesize to form images that touch the viewer’s heart whilst issuing a challenge: there are deeper meanings to be unraveled, hidden clues amongst the hyper-real still lives, portraits and animal scenes; meanings which echo deep in the unconscious mind. Reviewers have compared Movchan’s work to Velasquez, Colville and Magritte.
