Margarita Sikorskaia will return to the public from a decade-long hiatus in her stunning new exhibition, “Origins,” opening February 16, 2019 at Modus Locus. A passionate and prolific artist, Margarita’s new work ties together earthly elements from across the globe in a call to meditate upon the common source of all beings.
Since 2009, Sikorskaia has been focused on illustrating children’s books. Origins is Sikorskaia’s return to figure painting, describing her process as “Asking questions of the universe only my brush can answer. From the paint that is emerging, I reconnect with the source of life which connects all relations, that connects me to home. The home that is Minnesota where I brought a child into this world; the home that is St. Petersburg, Russia where I honed my skill; the home that is Sestroretsk, with full tables of long meals and heartfelt toasts; the home that is earth from which we all emerge, our ultimate origin.”
