Ella Kruglyanskaya : This is a Robbery

11 Mar 2020–24 Jul 2020


Part 1: 3 Duke Street, St. James’s, London, SW1. Part 2: 11 Duke Street, St. James’s, London, SW1. For her second London exhibition at Thomas Dane Gallery, Ella Kruglyanskaya displays her deeply original streak—part-rebellious, part-classicist—and continues her focus on the gendered and expressionistic histories of painting albeit with a more personal and introspective drive. The exhibition takes the form of a continuous collage in two parts across both gallery spaces. Each includes a profusion of works on canvas, egg tempera panels and works on paper, unpacking the traditions of portraiture, still-life, trompe l’oeil and the memento mori, scrutinising her own artistic output throughout.
