Ludmila Kouzmin Paints an Aesthetic of Place

| May 9, 2015

Throughout Ludmila Kouzmin’s expressively evocative architectural landscapes one finds keen observation and an appreciation for structural details and space, as the artist discovers an organic balance between function and aesthetic.

Heavy with atmosphere and mood, these buildings are comfortably settled into their surroundings, harmoniously taking a peaceful yet active role in the natural world. Weather holds a subtle presence within Kouzmin’s works, infusing her paintings with a sensitivity to the soft diffusion of sunlight and air and the quiet power of gathering storm clouds. Kouzmin paints in oils on linen or canvas, initially drawing upon photographs but repeatedly refining her focus in layers of color, texture, and geometry of place to achieve her artistic vision.

Born in Dresden, Germany to a family of Russian descent, Ludmila Kouzmin spent her early life in a refugee camp before relocating to Australia where she later built a successful career lecturing internationally on Russian linguistics. An enthusiastic artist since she was a child, she studied at the University of Melbourne and now exhibits worldwide with works held in private collections throughout Australia, the United States, and the United Kingdom.
