Exposed Walls

Exposed Walls is a series of oil paintings of existing Russian monasteries and churches, many of which were built over 400 years ago. The idea of this series was born when the artist worked in an architectural group that designed chirches. When working in Moscow and the surrounding areas, the artist photographed each of the churches depicted in the paintings. This series has a special mixed media technique that helps translate the character of each cathedral.
