Eugenie Vronskaya was born in Moscow, Russia, and has been living in the UK for thirty-three years. Currently, she shares her time between London and the Highlands of Scotland. She completed her BA and MA fine Art University in Moscow and was the first Russian student to be accepted at the RCA, where she received a double MA in Painting and Printmaking.
Drawing upon the practice of icon painting, she intentionally flattens space to create alternative planes, – a painting space. She does not attempt to imitate reality but portrays her own “inner space” through the language of painting. Vronskaya uses natural pigments and minerals in her work.
Her work often focuses on the central image to create an otherworldliness, dreamlike state, or a sense of deep meditation. She works with images and space to abstract and simplifies in order to make a more powerful expression.
She is represented by John Martin Gallery and her work can be found in many private and public collections including Tate and Pushkin museums.
