 Galyna Moskvitina
'The Heart Of The Matter’

 Featuring the Laternative Realism style founded by the artist herself, The Heart of the Matter is the radiant result of Moskvitina’s own fifteen year experience of Eastern Philosophy. Whatever your personal take on spirituality, Moskvitina’s paintings lend themselves flawlessly to a meditative state; the colours are soft, with the pastel tones of prisms or soap bubbles. As bright as the Christmas lights of Oxford Street, the walls of Hay Hill Gallery are illuminated with the idea that by peeling back the dulling layers of material stuff and noise, the true centre will be found.

Moskvitina explains that her ‘Laternative Realism’ has its etymological beginnings in ‘lantern’ and ‘nature’. Her canvases catch the magpie-eye with glittering jewels, snowflake prisms, cracked ice and smashed glass. Inspired by the teachings of Gurdjieff this ‘authentic artist’ is deliberate in her approach, consciously creating art designed to resonate deeply with the spectator.  Our rushed approach can be altered by these visual prompts: in slowing down to become aware of the present, our concept of time will be stretched out like elastic.

Moskvitina’s works have been auctioned at Bonhams and MacDougalls, and many are now in private collections as meditative pieces. Like tuning forks they strike a silvery note, aligning every listener with ‘the heart of the matter’. Though the maelstrom of shoppers and glowing taillights of rush hour continues to busily hum round Marylebone, this is an unexpectedly beautiful space to catch your breath- and just be still for a little while.

Hay Hill Gallery also presents a sculpture collection which features works by Eleanor Cardozo, Nicola Godden, Richard L.Minns, Andy Cheese, Jamie McCartney, Ian Edwards, Gianfranco Meggiato, Alfonso & Massimiliano Cacchiarelli Principi, and Oleg Prokofiev.
