Show & Tell Gallery

Upcoming: Alëna Skarina

Thursday, May 13, 2010

Show & Tell Gallery is pleased to welcome Siberian born artist Alëna Skarina to her first solo exhibition with the gallery. Alëna's art reflects her deep affinity with animals and their poignant nature. Line refinement, organic hand done typography, and tasty (sometimes perverse) subject matter are some of Alëna's most common pursuits when it comes to illustration.

Alëna’s fine art illustrations have been recognized by American Illustration, 3X3 Magazine, Applied Arts, and Creative Quarterly. Her commercial clients include Milk, Nissan, and Chatelaine Magazine.

Kind Red is a body of work about kindred connections manifested by kindness. The animals and creatures in this body of work interact in symbiotic ways, denoting the beauty of reciprocation. The typographic elements that appear throughout the Kind Red series also reinforce Alëna's personal stance: that kindness is the most powerful taming agent, akin to the power of blood ties.
