Exhibitionin New York, NY / United States
Monya Rowe Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new paintings by Polina Barskaya titled “Still”.
Time has passed very quickly these last 19 months. A daughter entered my world and my paintings. Every routine, ritual, schedule has been rearranged. Of course, my paintings have changed as well. At the same time the mood of the world has shifted. Life has never been more isolating. We left our Brooklyn apartment to live in the country sides of Croatia and Italy. We watched our baby grow and I slowly made paintings. The pace of painting this way gave me more time to reflect. The routine of bathing and feeding, and simply going on with life, are present. Spending more time at home meant life seemed stiller, and quieter. These paintings come from a place of new feelings, new fears, new anxieties, and new ways of seeing. (Polina Barskaya, Italy, 2021)
