Ekaterina Popova Invites Us To Her Personal Space With Her Casual Oil Paintings. The Philadelphia-Based Painter Depicts Interiors In Both Warm And Cool Color Palettes As A Way To Explore The Meaning Of Home.
He invites the viewer to these romantic and lived spaces at the Cole Gallery in Paris, which will be opened on November 17, 2022.
An untidy bed, an open window, a bathtub full of water, all these simple movements of everyday life are elevated to a new level in Popova’s paintings. With his painting brush and great use of colors, he can breathe life into these rooms and create an atmosphere of mystery and a sense of familiarity.
His paintings highlight the warmth and beauty of domestic spaces, including objects that hint at human presence without any figures in the frame. We can lose ourselves in each canvas’s highly realistic and relatable scenes while appreciating the artist’s eye for composition and technical talents.
At a time when many people around the world spend most of their day in these types of indoor spaces, paintings become a metaphor for taking time, being present, and enjoying life moment by moment.
Through Ecartina’s works, we can understand that a house is not defined only by location. The rooms we live in and the homes we build are layered and subtle.
The way we throw our sheets on the bed in the morning or when we enjoy a cup of tea on the balcony, The little gestures of our personalities combine to create an atmosphere of intimacy and a truly unique home.
