Ink Paintings on Books

Artist Ekaterina Panikanova was born in St. Petersburg in 1975 and recently opened her third solo show at Sara Zarin Gallery in Rome featuring a number of ink and acrylic paintings on grids of vintage books. Reflecting the age of the books, Panikanova creates imagery suggesting aspects of memory or old snapshots commingled with illustrations of birds, antlers, baked goods, and lace. To compliment the installations she also created a number of glass and lead pieces you can see here.

The exhibition is titled Crepuscoli (Twilights).
