About the Artists

The work of Russian-born husband-and-wife team Igor Kozlovsky and Marina Sharapova is characterized by a remarkable fusion of seemingly discordant elements: past and present, figurative and abstract, traditional and avant-garde In images of striking beauty and depth, Renaissance-era figures float over backgrounds of cryptic text and pattern while areas of intricate, realistic detail coexist with expanses of layered color. Igor and Marina strive to “give new meaning to familiar images, placing them in unexpected frames.” Synthesizing the modes and motifs of various art historical periods into coherent, arresting images, they cause great distances of time and geography to collapse. The theme of fusion is not limited to the content of Igor and Marina’s work—it is also integral to their art-making process. Each painting represents an extraordinary feat of collaboration between two artistic minds. The result is an entirely unique artistic landscape where tradition and innovation, old and new, real and fantastic, collide.
