September-October 2014: SHARED PROSPERITY

by Sofiya Inger

Abundance
acrylic painting on Plexiglas
by Sofiya Inger

With bold, vibrant colors and simple design, this translucent work celebrates all that blooms, ripens, and unfolds by awesome force of Nature. In the long, cold winters of Russia, painting brought color to Sofiya’s life and gave it new meaning. She says her art led her “through adolescence, strict schooling, sleepless nights of motherhood, through the strains of marriage, deaths, and the feverish attempts to grow new roots in the strangely colored soil of a new country.”
