Polina Barskaya paints intimate domestic scenes of her daily life, creating an almost voyeuristic take on autobiographical minutiae. Most are self-portraits of her of of her husband: sharing a cup of tea, settled together on the couch, or a face mask after a shower. Her home of Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, is as much a subject as any, but Barskaya also portrays her travels, with stops in Hudson, New York, and in Greece. A focus on the play of light in sensitive color washes, changing throughout the day, highlights a delicate vulnerability in each work and a poetic atmosphere of solitude.
Each piece was made by the artist in her Brooklyn, NY studio.
