Home is Where the Art Is

Now that we’ve all been mainly indoors for a few weeks now, I thought I’d share one of my favorite artists whose oil paintings examines the idea of “home.” Ekaterina Popova’s current body of work consists of paintings (ranging in size from 9″ x 12″ to 6′ x 5′) of interior spaces (particularly bedrooms) of friends, her own room, and submissions she gets online. The oil paintings are colorful with bold, kinetic brushstrokes, use light in remarkable ways, and really showcase the essence and emotion of the lived-in spaces. They perfectly capture a specific moment in time. Looking at them makes me feel calm, comforted, and oddly at home in a space that is not my own.
