VIKTORYIA VINNIKAVA

Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography
April 26 - May 17, 2016
Reception: Thursday April 28, 2016 6-8 PM

Wide expanses of desert provide the backdrop for Viktoryia Vinnikava’s photographs. Born in Belarus, Viktoryia lived in the United Arab Emirates for 12 years, and the ways in which light and color are reflected in its desert environment along with her technical mastery over her camera and equipment are the basis of her images. In her work, Viktoryia uses her imagination and mathematical mind to both accurately reveal reality and to turn that reality into strikingly abstract graphic patterns. “I start seeing so many beautiful details of ordinary things which the naked eye can't see,” the artist says, and by capturing those details, she creates a world that transforms and reimagines the landscapes she records.

With a sharp eye for light and shadow and a subtle knowledge of how to highlight the variety of the desert’s color palette, Viktoryia gives each of her images a strong sense of visual counterpoint, instilling them with movement and life. She takes her appreciation of “the magical desert and its warm beauty” and in her photographs she makes us see it as well.
