Iryna Yermolova

Iryna combines her Ukrainian upbringing with a creative drive inspired by the English countryside, she presents bold yet sensitive figurative studies with a confident style and striking use of light and colour. In her most recent body of work, her powerful imagery is greatly influenced by her formative years and the iconography surrounding orthodox religion; dreamlike compositions of youthful figures merge with the inner-self and ideas surrounding identity, culture and myth as well as a more personal journey, that of an artist, mother and woman.
