NEW YORK, Oct. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ana Tzarev Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of large-scale multi-paneled works by Ana Tzarev, many of which have not been shown in New York. The work continues the artist's exploration of nature while evoking the experience of visiting Monet's famous gardens at Giverny.

As art historian Eliot Rowlands writes in the catalogue essay, "With their unmistakable style and technique, the paintings of Ana Tzarev present a radiant world that is evoked, not naturalistically rendered. Photographs of the artist at work in her studio show her not before a particular motif, recording it, but rather concentrating instead on her own, inner vision of brilliant-hued flora, figures representing a 'rich variety of human culture' and harmonious scenes of exotic birds in nature."

Tzarev's work reflects her remarkable depth of knowledge regarding the cultural history of lands as diverse as Africa, Japan, Hawaii, and Thailand among others as well as her lifelong passion for flowers. She has exhibited worldwide and was one of the international artists selected to design a portion of the Hanoi Ceramic Mural in 2009, the world's largest ceramic mural.  Widely recognized for her remarkable vibrancy of color and abundant use of texture, Ana Tzarev has developed a powerful gestural style with an energy not unlike that of the Post-Impressionist era.

A true original, Ana Tzarev has taken a new approach to painting, bringing a freshness and vitality to her canvases seldom seen in the art world today.  Her unique new style builds lush sculptural surfaces that give the total experience of the artist being in the moment, fused with the subject.

Recent and upcoming exhibitions by the artist include: Ana Tzarev, Vietnam Fine Arts Museum, Hanoi, Vietnam; Ana Tzarev: The Life of Flowers at the State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia; Ana Tzarev: New Works at the Gildo Pastor Centre, Monaco; and at Cite Internationale des Arts, Paris, 2012.
