Roman Luchuk: Paintings @ Ukrainian Institute of America
Sep 29 @ 6:00 pm – Oct 13 @ 6:00 pm

Roman Luchuk: Paintings

September 29 – October 22, 2017
Reception for the artist: Friday, September 29 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM

Art at the Institute is pleased to welcome the Fall 2017 season with an exhibition of thirty landscape paintings by Roman Luchuk. Curated by Walter Hoydysh, PhD, this is the artist’s first solo exhibition in the United States.

Each of Roman Luchuk’s canvases evokes the splendor and energy of his native Carpathian Mountains in seductive compositions that exude a lifelong love for the mysteries of the Hutsullandscape. His iconic images express instinctive emotional experiences rather than impressions of thephysical world. He does this through an extravagant use of paint and color. Expansive stillness and silence of the pastoral are interrupted by sudden outbursts of life and vitality changing from one moodto another.

These paintings represent only vaguely suggested realism to domestic and ecclesiasticalbackdrops while retaining an unmistakable link with the landscape. This is the essence of the art of Luchuk’s painting: creating through color and form a new and irresistible personal reality which reflects the innermost being of the artist running parallel with the reality outside.

Roman Luchuk was born in Kosiv, Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast, in western Ukraine. He studiedpainting at the Kosiv College of Applied and Decorative Art and interior design at the Lviv National Academy of Art. His paintings havebeen included in numerous group and solo exhibitions throughout Ukraine. Mr. Luchuk lives and works in Kosiv, where he also teaches painting at the Kosiv regional branchof the Lviv National Academy of Art.

Exhibition hours: Tuesday through Sunday, 12:00 – 6:00 PM.
