Alina Maksimenko

6th November - 30th November 2015

We are very excited to introduce Ukrainian born artist Alina Maksimenko to Bath. Maksimenko is a serious and intelligent artist who researches and questions her practice, pushing the boundaries in her quest for answers. What results is an exciting body of work, which is both figurative and abstract at the same time.

Painterly and contemporary in the use of her materials, Maksimenko's figures are exquisitely well observed. Moody and thoughtful, her figures often present themselves to the viewer with their backs turned or in silhouette with the slightest hint of tonal shift to indicate a limb or turn of the head. These are elegant and sophisticated paintings, which have a quiet strength. Maksimenko has just completed a residency in Paris, where a number of the paintings for her solo exhibition with us were created.
