Woolworth Walk in Asheville, NC, Features Works by Olga Dorenko

Woolworth Walk in Asheville, NC, will present Olga Dorenko: Painting, on view in the FW Front Gallery, from May 1 - 30, 2013. A reception will be held on May 3, from 5-7pm.

Dorenko’s work is concerned with color and light, inspired by local, national and international landscapes. As a student at a classical art school in the former Soviet Union, she spent a considerable amount of time mixing and blending colors. It is her use of color that lends a contemporary interpretation to her otherwise realist landscapes.

Dorenko has a deep appreciation for Asian art techniques and styles, and greatly admires the gentle light, vivid brushwork and painstaking detail of the Russian artist Ivan Shishkin. She is also continuously inspired by Nature’s variable colors and the beauty found in both rural and urban landscapes. She has experienced many changes in her life. As a child, her family uprooted frequently and moved around the Soviet Union. Later, as a young mother, Dorenko emigrated to the United States. The beauty of nature is the constant in these changes. Flowers are beautiful on either side of the ocean, in any corner of the world. Life is ever-changing. Her paintings pursue the everlasting.
