About

Iliya Mirochnik’s portrait of his grandmother is exemplary of the artist’s capacity to connect cultures and paint of our times. This is not simply a nostalgia painting of an elderly, Russian woman with a kerchief, but rather an authentic representation of a formidable woman resting on a low stoop in front of an old growth bush, which looms large, suggesting poetry and parallels of history, time and maturity. The grand bloom cycle has peaked, yet still carries a sweet perfume. Mirochnik has painted the flowers masterfully, in a blur;it is almost as if the bush is becoming a memory before our eyes. It has always been an artist’s job to recognize and capture the beauty of our times, and Mirochnik depicts abstracted emotions on the canvas as real to the viewer. As our world becomes smaller, we embrace outreaches of empathy. Any preconceived cultural differences we might have are forgotten due to Mirochnik’s ability to connect with his viewers by painting dignity and bestowing majesty to the universal roles of grandmother, mother and companion. "Mirochnik's gift is that his artist's antennae are international, yet he is armed with the Repin Institute's academic training," says Yarosh. "He shares stories in paint that go beyond their origins. His work is of our time and gives a sense of the shared experience. Seeing his exquisite painting and sensitivity to the beauty and poetry in our lives evokes hope." ILIYA MIROCHNIK- ARTIST BIO: Originally from Odessa, Ukraine, Iliya immigrated to the United States in the early 1990's with his family.
