Irina Gorbman Paints the Essence of Nature

| December 7, 2014

Distilled from the soul of nature, Irina Gorbman’s abstract works infuse their space with a meditative and deeply healing sensation, as the quiet peace and unseen essence of the natural world is made visible in the luminous color and rippling motion of her marks.

An appreciation for beauty fills Gorbman’s art with an aesthetic of harmonious vitality, as her organically atmospheric paintings come alive with an energetic tranquility. The artist creates her original works in oil paints on canvas within a large square format, allowing her compositions a balanced space to develop their full impact. Gorbman’s art is also reproduced in various mediums and methods for use in interior design.

Originally trained as a mechanical engineer in Russia, Irina Gorbman discovered her passion for fine art when circumstances aligned and she became an art dealer in the United States working with high-ranking Russian artists. She later helped to establish an art school in the Seattle area and now lives in Dover, Massachusetts where she runs a boutique gallery, studio, and art salon from her home.

About the Exhibition

The Long, Abstracted Road

Pathway to Abstraction is what it sounds like – a journey that takes us from sense and understanding to the complete decomposition of comprehension as we know it. As the featured artists tear further and further into the tapestry of reality, the spectator is left to wade through the remnants of figuration: colors, forms, and texture leave traces of each artist’s unique story. An almost post-apocalyptic impression settles, as each scene entices the viewer to seek out something familiar in the foreign shapes and alien lines. The ghosts of cityscapes, surreal visages, and shadowy allusions to the human body are deeply embedded in these powerful compositions, leading the viewer on a mysterious trail away from the familiar and into something wholly unfamiliar, primal, and peculiarly beautiful.
