ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Oxana Uryasev was born in Ukraine to a family of academics in 1960. Oxana’s mother, the professor of mathematics at the University of Kiev, was famous for writing di#cult to comprehend non-Euclidian geometry textbooks. Under the stern in&uence of her mother, Oxana completed a doctoral degree in probability theory. She was slated to become a professor, teaching future Soviet nuclear scientists how to calculate the likelihood of their missiles landing on target.A few years later, with the Soviet Union dissolving around her, Oxana was far from this original plan. Living in Vienna, Austria, she was raising two beautiful kids on a diet of Schnitzel and Kinderbier. By the mid 90s, Oxana had moved to the USA. Oxana studied under several prominent painters but is primarily self-taught. Her creative process is in&uenced by her mathematical background and the fantastical images are fed by her international cultural experience. Her works are in several private collections and have been displayed at the Tench Gallery and at the Harn Museum of Art in Gainesville. Her paintings can be found at www.oxanau.com

Alexander Dudorov was born on July, 5, 1963 in settlement Konosha of the Arkhangelsk area of Russia and graduated from the Polytechnical University of Saint-Petersburg where he is currently employed. Since the childhood he has been fond of music, literature and art. Alexander has recently found himself as an artist – just six years ago. Despite such a short period of time, through his talent he has created inspired works of art which have been highly praised by critics and professional artists alike. At present time A.Dudorovis a member of prestigious association, the Union of Artists of Russia, and has already presented eight personal exhibitions of his works. The state museums of Russia have received many of his pieces, while hundreds of his pictures have been shipped around the world for the enjoyment of private collections. A.Dudorov was the finalist in the 2015 and 2015 INTERNATIONAL ART FESTIVAL in New York. The creativity of A.Dudorov’s art focuses on the search for beautyand natural interest around the world: the light northern sky and sensation of cleanliness of frosty northern winter deeply penetrate the soul; the barely perceptible, but distinct smell of new-mown grass; the melodies of the solemn St. Petersburg architecture; running through a rain surrealistic trams; and flowers so loved by him.The artist carefully peers at details, not missing any nuance of life, and widely generalizing, with metaphysical scope.This gives freedom to emotions, specifying the shortest way to exhaustive clearness.It is extremely difficult to inhale a life in a picture, which, actually is an essential task of the master with divine gift. The form, color, texture, touch, light – all this in a harmonious combination also generates a necessary degree of persuasiveness of art of A.Dudorov. email@example.com
