Join Martin Lawrence Galleries, Costa Mesa, and celebrate the magical world of Liudmila Kondakova.
Meet the artist and delight in her mastery of color and light, captured in breathtaking original paintings and limited-edition prints.
Martin Lawrence Galleries is proud to present Liudmila Kondakova‘s collection entitled “Notre Dame in Winter,” including “Postcards from Paris”. Construction on Notre Dame, the most stunning gothic cathedral in the world, was initiated in the 12th century and completed in the 14th. From the moment it arose, it became the very heartbeat of medieval Paris. It was further immortalized in writer Victor Hugo’s 19th century classic The Hunchback of Notre Dame and works by the artist Henri Matissé. Kondakova’s unique ability to capture Notre Dame’s dramatic towers, spire, stained glass, and statuary is legendary, and-like all of Kondakova’s work-is guaranteed to take your breath away.
“We all know the feeling of experiencing a dream so real and vivid that when we wake, we lived it. I feel this way about my art”. -Liudmila Kondakova
Liudmila Kondakova grew up in Russia, studied at the Grabar Center in Moscow and attended Russia’s School of Sacred Arts and the Moscow Art Institute, before immigrating to the United States in 1991. Her artistic gifts talent and idealized vision of Paris has served as the foundation and inspiration of much of her magnificent work. Both Russian and Byzantine sensibilities influence the palette and icons throughout her paintings. Kondakova often finds herself chasing after a particular hour of the day in her paintings; she searches for the perfect hour to reveal all the magic of the color.
Kondakova will be greeting collectors and sharing new works, in person, at The South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa – on Saturday, December 7th, 2019 from 6-8 PM
