Latin Beauty, Oil on Canvas, 39" x 39"

NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature Russian-born artist, Wladimir Tasoff, in Masters of the Imagination: The Latin American Fine Art Exhibition. The exhibition is scheduled to run from September 13, 2011 through October 4, 2011 (opening reception: Thursday, September 15, 2011).

About the Artist
Wladimir Tasoff’s massive oil and mixed media paintings offer a unique brand of organic surrealism charged with delicate intimations, traces and shadows. Overlapping, semi-translucent veils of rich, frosted pastel figuration sketch out the female body in synthesis with the vegetal and geographic features of the mysterious terrain. Adopting the characteristically surrealist trope of masquerade as metaphor, Tasoff’s dynamic use of hybrid female forms greet the viewer during precious instants of sensual slumber and spiritual discovery. Specific archetypes such as angels, enchantresses and deities appear to fuse seamlessly into their surroundings. Tropical oases, glacial slopes and dewy meadows emerge amidst illusions to Western and Oriental culture, fashioning mystical landscapes ripe with the beguiling fruit of forms, symbols and signs.

Wladimir Tasoff was born in 1970 in Russia. He has exhibited in the galleries of cities as diverse and far apart as Moscow, Stockholm, Dublin, Paris, New York and Quito, Ecuador, where he currently lives and works.
