Maria Kazanskaya

Paintings and drawings of abandoned houses observed traveling in Southern California

First Tuesday ArtWalk Reception:
* February 4, 5:30 – 8:30 pm

Exhibit Dates:  February 1 – 27

A moving exhibit of paintings and drawings, Route 66 Blues highlights artist Maria Kazanskaya‘s recent work devoted to abandoned houses she observed while traveling in Southern California.

Artist Statement:
Some of buildings are decrepit farm buildings, others are sad witnesses of the housing crisis of 2008. Repossessed by banks and then intentionally made unlivable, they stand amid the vast and dispassionate desert slowly returning to the elements.

Broken walls, torn wallpaper, a sofa thrown outdoors and yielding to harsh sun and wind, a children’s toy, a woman’s shoe — a chilling, but eerily peaceful sight that caught my imagination.

Maria Kazanskaya is a Russian artist living in the Bay Area.  Her work has been shown internationally and is represented by Saatchi Art
