In celebration of the new season, Skaya Art will present the ‘Art in Shades of Gold’ exhibition by the Ukrainian artist Yana Rusnak as part of ME Dubai’s Cultural Connections initiative.

The exhibition will be hosted in ME Dubai’s Art Gallery area on the 3rd floor and admission is free for the public starting Thursday, 7th September until Monday, 9th October 2023.

“We are pleased to collaborate with ME Dubai and Yana Rusnak to launch our new art season.

Born in 1993, Yana is a renowned Ukrainian contemporary artist who brings over 7 years of artistic prowess to ME Dubai with paintings that are allegories to how human emotions and character intertwine with the animal world.

Her work is characterized by the use of bold and geometric shapes, vivid colors and her prominent use of triangles which symbolize various concepts like balance, harmony, tension, conflict, integration, subjectivity, manifestation, lightening and ascension. The sharp angles and dynamic lines of each triangle create a sense of movement and energy, conveying celestial radiance and nature. Yana’s triangle symbol is also inseparable from the number three denoting symmetry, understanding and the birth of true wisdom.

Yana’s paintings include the colours of two precious metals: Gold and Silver. Silver symbolizes the colour of the moon and signifies values of innocence, purity and mercy. Whereas Gold represents splendor, the radiance of the sun, and the highly valuable quality of non-deterioration. By utilizing the best traditions of contemporary animalism to create a ‘Dialogue with the Universe’ she alludes to the elements of music, light, nature and the galaxy revealing glimpses of human aspirations and life-affirming energy. Moreover, each of Yana’s masterpieces also contain a precious gold nugget reflecting her intricate artistry.

Her work has also received popularity in the UAE having been exhibited at various hotels, galleries and previous editions of World Art Dubai.

Yana’s month-long residency at ME Dubai will be complemented by the hotel’s awe-inspiring architecture and interior design, forming an aesthetic collaboration.
