Maria Plavinskaya


Maria Plavinskaya's works are particularly interesting from the point that she uses photos only as a starting point on the way of creating complex artistic images. After analyzing the pictures by changing contrasts and playing with colors, the author builds them into compositions where each element is perceived as a part of dynamic development of the installation. Just like her spouse, artist Dmitry Plavinsky, she uses analytic decomposition of a single image into fragments in order to create art works of a long time perception.

Photo installations by Maria Plavinskaya were displayed at her solo exhibition at The Moscow State Museum of Architecture name after A.B. Schusev in 2008 and in different galleries of Moscow and New York in 2009–2014, at joint exhibition with Dmitry Plavinsky "Structures of Time" at Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art in St. Petersburg.
