MORA is proud to announce this exhibition of an exceptionally talented artist through a wide diversity of media. Prokopenko is a rarity in today’s contemporary art scene. Her focus on detail in her mosaics is akin to that of artists that worked hundreds of years ago.
Oksana has been featured on the International Russian TV network, NTV as well as having been interviewed on artistic radio programs. Her work has been featured in various magazines, including a 4 page spread in Fall 2010 issue of The Glass Craftsman. Her work is also in the permanent collection of The Sienna Art Institute in Sienna, Italy.
Often described as a colorist, Prokopenko is equally adept on canvas with a brush as she is at cutting thousands of tiny colorful pieces of glass by hand.
Prokopenko’s dyptic paintings, titled “The Wisp of Red Realities have been aquired by MORA into our permanent collection and of course will be available at her show. MORA director, Margo Grant, wrote the following concerning this Prokopenko work:
“Prokopenko’s deft treatment of energy and emotion is apparent in her twin red delight. The shocking blue in the upper right portrays a tender jolt of conflict that is echoed almost everywhere you look in art and the world over.
The soul of Prokopenko’s work is in her walking that fine line between the transcendent and the ordinary. The small blue patch in the sea of red may be seen as reflecting the disparate nature inherent in most things we encounter. Or does the blue treatment represent the whimsical and incredulity of our world?” Aug 12, 2011
