The Book Paintings of Ekaterina Panikanova

"Design", "Inspiration"Meghan Mary Keeley HarcarComment
The work of Russian artist Ekaterina Panikanova consists of old books and other documents such as notebooks, that she has painted on and arranged to create these beautiful installations. I really enjoy the way she arranges her compositions and am interested in the idea of layering images on printed material. It gives it the feeling of collage, and naturally, any work that incorporates books, and different types of paper, is right up my alley! There is also something about her subject choices, they feel whimsical and in some ways, almost nostalgic.   Most of the images below are from her show titled Un, due, tre, fuoco at z20 Galleria in Rome from earlier this year.
