A Metaphorical Journey with Vladimir Kush
What if God was... a flower? Maybe you never imagined Jesus as a sunflower before, but when Vladimir Kush reinvents da Vinci’s Last Supper, it starts to make sense.
When you see Vladimir Kush’s artwork, you know that there is much more to a painting than meets the eye. That is why visitors at Exclusive Collections Gallery in Fashion Valley were so honored to meet Vladimir Kush in person on October 8th and 9th and listen to his unique explications of his work.
On Friday and Saturday night, art collectors and their families had the chance to meet the artist, and even buy signed copies of his books and his calendar. Vladimir Kush, wearing a self-designed pendant and accompanied by his poet father, took the time to present his famous prints and groundbreaking originals. The evening’s gathering granted the perfect opportunity to divulge upon themes of balance, discovery, and the individual journey.
Vladimir Kush, described as a “true prodigy”, defines the artistic genre of “metaphorical realism” through his paintings such as Orchid Family Rollercoaster and Daisy Games. His vision draws from the mythology, customs, and traditions of various countries and cultures, identifying with the human ability to project significance onto an image through metaphor and symbol. The paintings allow for a great deal of interpretation, appealing to the imagination and sense of wonder.
EC Galleries hopes that you enjoyed Kush’s show, and hope to see you out at our Fashion Valley location again in the first week of November for the 4th Annual Miniature Show, Nov. 5, 6, and 7. For updates on this event and those in the future, visit www.facebook.com/ecgalleries or www.ecgallery.com.
