Evgeny and Lydia Baranov ~" European Vacation Exhibition" Art Reception April 6th, 5:00 - 8:00pm
As the warmth of spring starts to break, romance comes alive in a new show at Ella W. Richardson Fine Art. Painting duo Evgeny and Lydia Baranov are back with a collection of stunning European beauties, from sailboats in Malcesine, Honfleur and Hoorn to peonies in Paris. Every year, the Baranovs seem to expand their horizons both in travel and artistry and we are so pleased to welcome their return to the gallery.
Their style, a blend of realism and impressionism captivates audiences as does their unique method of collaboration. In many of their paintings, the artists work simultaneously on the same canvas while painting en plein air. Working in a duet enables them to perform faster and evaluate their own accomplishments in a more comprehensive manner. "As always with collaborative work, the greatest challenge is learning to respect the opinion of the creative partner and to accept constructive criticism," they say.
This collection is particularly striking because of the color palette they were working from. You have the deep pinks of Cherry Blossoms in Hoorn, the burnt red and mustard yellow of a row of ancient buildings that house a restaurants and shops in Malcesine to the old wooden sailngs vessels in every port they visited. You can't help but smile when you look at the Baranovs' works: they ooze warmth in every brushstroke.
Born in Moscow, Evgeny Baranov and Lydia Velichko Baranov are known internationally for their exquisite oil paintings. Evgeny received his Masters of Science in Architecture from the Moscow Architectural Institute in 1984 and Lydia received the same degree in 1987. The two met when they were working as architects with the Institute of Special Projects in Restoration, Moscow. They were married and moved to the United States in 1990. Notable collectors of their work include the Royal Family of the United Kingdom, the Hearst Family, the Clint Eastwood Family, and the Russian Federation. They have been featured in numerous publications, including Art of the West, The Artist's Magazine, Southwest Art, and PleinAir magazine and have accrued countless awards from competitions over the years.
