Vera Iliatov, oil on linen, 16\" x 16\", 2017. Vera Iliatova (b. 1975, St. Petersburg, Russia) received an MFA in Painting/Printmaking from Yale University, CT and a BA from Brandeis University, MA. She has also undergone studies at Sorbonne University, Paris, France and completed a residency at Skowhegan School of Art, ME. Iliatova has recently exhibited her work at Tibor de Nagy, NY; Inman Gallery, Houston; Ortega y Gasset, Brooklyn, and Monya Rowe Gallery. Her work is currently on view in “Women Painting: Selections From the Collection of Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz” at Miami Dade College Kendall Gallery (through September 29). Upcoming group exhibitions include “Artist as Maggid: Jewish Folktales Retold”, Contemporary Jewish Museum, San Francisco, CA (September 28, 2017 - January 28, 2018). Iliatova lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.In Iliatova’s paintings, women are caught in some type of dramatic interaction. The focus is on the nature of shifting characters as the protagonists reveal themselves in different ways at different times. The landscape is the theatrical setting where the melodramas unfold. Renderings of intimate, sometimes disquieting, moments reveal a keen eye for the psychological pressures found within relationships. Her protagonists are on the verge of discovery. The poetic images capture fragments of the awkward transition from adolescence to adulthood. Adding another layer of mystification, Iliatova’s sartorial choices range from contemporary to classic to “old-fashioned”. Her heroines could be the star of a 1960’s French New Wave film or a 1990’s teen television show. Go to Mona Rowe Gallery website to see and learn more about her artwork.
