Gallery Hours: Wed - Sun 1-6 pm

The exhibit "Essence" at Gallery 1313 is happening now until the 30th of March - the paintings by Anna Lobsanova are about the sacred power of nature. It expresses the mysterious sense of life by making the hidden visible. The symbolism and literal image of the vision of existence, the concept of energy and its unlimited power is the purpose of the paintings.

The way this message is transmitted is in a variety of styles, ranging from realistic to abstract portrayal of various subjects. There’s a theme of individual, stylized figures personifying a force of nature or representing the universal impression of being; and then there are abstract pieces that convey a primordial essence of life and its progress.

Anna Lobsanova is a recent graduate of the Ontario College of Art & Design (OCAD). She explores the incorporeal side of everything that exists everywhere. In her paintings she attempts to show, with colorful and clear imagery the enigma of life, the soul of nature, the possibilities that a person possesses, and the core of the immaterial energy.

It is the reality of the truth that life is an ever prevailing, omnipresent power which motivates Anna’s work. "I am inspired by the perfection and beauty of existence and believes that these absolutes are eternal," she says. "My goal is to manifest these ideals in my art by channeling a sense of vibrant harmony, so that by looking at the works the viewer can experience communication with the forces of nature," Anna concludes.

Essence is implicit in all reality and in this show the paintings serve the soul of being. They appeal to the spirit and question the perceptions about the unknown by pushing the limits of logic and imagination. Since essence is at the core of all things, the vision of life as an entity, as well as an all pervading force is what the viewer will see at the exhibit "Essence".
