Inspired by Nature: 20 Years of Art by Hava Gurevich
Hava Gurevich’s canvases pulsate with life. Bright colors and botanical motifs dance and tangle in abstract environments that bear resemblance to microscopic scans of cellular structures. “I am inspired by the elegant intricacy of patterns in nature that repeat on both small and large scales across a variety of lifeforms, from single cell amoebas to entire ecosystems.” The creative process for these works begins with drawing and photography. Images of daily encounters with nature and sketches of textures and details morph into lines, shapes and colors in acrylic paint. Patterns are abstracted and undulate across the canvas, forming the foundation of Gurevich’s visual language. Images from the imagination blend with botanical elements in vivid color combinations. These works capture the dynamics of nature and the constant state of growth and decay; the passage of death and the birth of new life.
The show will be on display at Matthaei Botanical Gardens from July 2 – September 11.
