Featuring paintings that survey the past ten years of the artist’s work, the exhibition will also debut a selection of new artworks made in 2016.

Kruglyanskaya’s paintings immerse viewers in a bold world of saturated colours and high contrast patterns.  Female relationships, friendships and dialogues form the foundation of the artist’s varied subject matters.

Her practice engages with many often-overlooked styles, techniques and formal concerns from the history of painting, such as her use of egg tempera. Working in a style that combines the graphic and the painterly, Kruglyanskaya embraces a wide range of influences from German expressionism to film and popular culture of the 1950s and 1960s.
