London, Saatchi Gallery, Duke of York’s HQ, King’s Road, from 17 May 2012, internationally acclaimed artist Ana Tzarev will present an array of her vibrant, large-scale canvases at the Saatchi Gallery. This will be the artist’s debut exhibition in London and will feature works dedicated to the form, colour and symbolic meaning of flowers, a subject which has greatly influenced her career as an artist.
Born in 1937 in Croatia, Tzarev has always been inspired by the natural beauty and rich cultural heritage of her home country. ‘My devotion to flowers began in my childhood by tending my grandmother’s garden’ says Tzarev, who has since made detailed studies in horticulture and designed gardens the world over. Inspired by sources as diverse as the indigenous plants of Africa, the exotic tropical flowers of Hawaii, the bustling flower markets of Asia and the imperial gardens of Russia, Tzarev captures blooms from across the globe in evocative large scale paintings which draw the viewer in through their vivid colours. Incorporating her passion for flowers into her art, Tzarev shares her personal perspectives on nature, be it wild or cultivated scenes.
The influences on Tzarev’s work are diverse and range from the Old Masters to Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painters who, like Tzarev, have been captivated by the symbolism and fragility of flowers. Her still life depiction of sunflowers in a vase is an ode to Vincent Van Gogh while her riotous blue and purple compositions pay homage to Claude Monet’s Water Lilies. Holding to a disciplined schedule of daily painting, Tzarev’s impasto technique lends her subject matter an immediacy which suggests they are protruding from the canvas. By directly applying paint, using a palette knife, brushes and even her fingers to achieve a slow build-up on the canvas, the image begins to take on a three dimensional, sculptural quality. Her combination of this technique, with a warm palette and familiar subject matter has helped Tzarev achieve a ‘universal language’, which has been recognised on an international level through exhibitions and public commissions.
The exhibition has been made possible through the generous support of the J.P. Morgan Private Bank. Commenting on the sponsorship, Olivier de Givenchy, Head of J.P. Morgan’s Private Bank in the UK, said: “We are very excited to be supporting Ana Tzarev’s vivid ‘Exposed: A Secret Garden’ exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery. J.P.
