IN SEARCH OF FALLING STARS

Ljudmilla Swarczewskaja (Estonia)

September 9 - October 15, 2017

The highly celebrated textile artist Ljudmilla Swarczewskaja surprises us with her new trend which includes 34 collages in mixed media. The title In Search of Falling Stars originates frm the poetry of Jaan Kaplinski.

The impulses of Swarczewskaja’s artworks are always varied, the most fruitful of which have been encounterers with fine arts: music, literature, film, theatre, architecture, painting. Amidst various feelings she benefits from her own aesthetic preferences, strong emotional impressions stimulate her creative growth. Ljudmilla believes that intellect transforms matter and that emergence of spontaneous thought always remains in the hands of an artist.

Impulse to the present exhibition was born by meeting with Leo Rohlin and his collages. Rohlin used fragments from his old landscape aquarelles. Like Rohlin, Ljudmilla used her archive stores to create new artworks.
The new compositions are milestones of emotional tension on the way to eternity.

Ljudmilla Swarczewskaja was born in Northern Ossetia and graduated from Estonian Art Academy in 1978.
15 years she made her living in Estonian textile industry. Since 1994 Ljudmilla has been lecturer of art and freelancer artist, a member of Estonian Artists’Society and Estonian Textile Artists’ Society. She has shown her artworks on exhibitions since 1977, in Estonia as well as abroad.

More than 100 of her textile patterns are kept in the Museum of Estonian Applied Art and Design. Her artworks can be found in many private collections of Estonia and Europe. Her huge artwork named Athletics (2010) adorns the Sports Hall of Pärnu.

In Search of Falling Stars is supported by the Town of Pärnu and the Estonian Cultural Endowment.
