Flora Yukhnovich @ Victoria Miro
12 September 2020 - 24 October 2020
An exhibition of new paintings created during a residency with the gallery in Venice by Flora Yukhnovich. Her sources include the music of Vivaldi and the memoirs of Casanova, in addition to one of her key influences, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, whose works include ceiling frescoes in the Ca’ Rezzonico museum and the Chiesa Santa Maria della Visitazione, which she was able to study first hand.
Titled Barcarole after the traditional folk songs sung by Venetian gondoliers and music composed in that style, new paintings completed recently in London, reflect further on these influences, in particular the frescoes of Tiepolo and the notions of pace, movement and musicality that arise visually from the orchestration of brushmark, line and colour.
