Mary Martin Gallery to Present “Between Heaven and Earth” by Oleg Trofimov
The public is invited to Mary Martin Gallery on June 2nd for the opening reception of “Between Heaven and Earth” by Oleg Trofimov, which will be held from 5 pm to 8 pm at 143 East Bay Street.
Splashing waves of Venetian canals, the stillness of a sun-soaked street during siesta, the vibrant atmosphere of small-town European streets and quaint corners of the world, are all subjects of the upcoming show “Between Heaven and Earth.”
The inspiration for internationally acclaimed artist, Oleg Trofimov’s paintings stems from his deep love of travel. “Between Heaven and Earth” showcases Trofimov’s unique ability and skill to capture not only the visual elements but also the sounds, sensations, and moods of the subject. The artist successfully aims to share special moments with the viewers, allowing them to experience the same emotions and memories.
Born in Krasnoarmeysk, Russia, Trofimov started drawing at age 5 in kindergarten. One drawing submitted in a competition received a special prize for its “humanitarian value.” In the years following Trofimov entered a children’s art school; and from 1986 to 1992 Trofimov studied the Moscow State University of Industrial Arts.
Trofimov’s preferred medium is oil and believes that it offers limitless potential to artists.
“Throughout my artistic journey, I continually uncover new discoveries and techniques to master” states Trofimov.
Comfortable creating artwork in all artistic genres, for this exhibit Trofimov introduced a level of abstraction to his well-known impressionistic representational style. “I wanted to emphasize the overall atmosphere of the paintings rather than focus on details”.
“OLD POND” (right) a 24” X 40” oil on canvas, depicts a serene pond with waterlilies and koi fish, and well represents one of Trofimov’s treasured places and travel memories. “VENETIAN SUN” (above right) a 30” X 24” oil on canvas will surely bring memories of the colors and textures to those fortunate to have visited the magical city.
Now residing in the U.S., Trofimov spends his time traveling the world creating and capturing special moments and memories in paintings that have been exhibited in shows nationally and internationally. Oleg Trofimov is proud to have his paintings exhibited in museums and be part of private and major corporate art collections throughout the world.
Oleg Trofimov is represented by Mary Martin Galleries.
