Featured Artist: Andrey Bogoslowsky / Cosmology Series

Center for Inquiry
Reception: February 12, 6 – 8 pm

66" by 50"

Washington DC artist Andrey Bogoslowsky was born in Saratov, Russia in 1966. He received his formal education at the Academy of Visual Arts in Warsaw, Plovdiv, Budapest and Madrid. He immigrated to New York City in 1988, and moved to Washington DC in 2002. His work has been exhibited at numerous galleries in New York, Washington DC, and Delaware, including Alla Rogers Gallery in Washington DC. His abstract impressionist nudes, landscapes, and florals have been commissioned by Escada and appeared in Broken Flowers, a film by Jim Jarmusch

The paintings will be exhibited through March 31 at the Center for Inquiry, a non profit organization that promotes a naturalistic worldview and planetary ethics.

Artist’s statement: Cosmology Series
“These works are mysterious, they have a feeling of the unknown being revealed . . . as if the greatest forces of this world painted them without human presence. And yet the hand of a master was involved a great deal. An individual in search of his identity in this world, and finding this deep connection with all around. Unseen and unimaginable beauty internally connected to the core of what it means to be human. Some serious business is being discussed in these paintings: The core of our existence, the roots of life as we know it are scrutinized under the brush of this passionate master of color. The time itself is captured and released in endless variety of shapes. Simple yet multilayered and complex in meaning. Realistic yet abstract. The great forces of creation are released and the observer becomes an acting part of the event.

These works explore the very meaning of life. The roots of ourselves and every bit of matter captured by this artist's brush. Overcoming gravity as if they were painted by the gods, or mother nature. The stellar wind, the darkness of space, the magnitude of things out there and our part in here. All is considered. All is one.
