Pysanka: Symbol of Renewal at the Museum of Russian Icons

Artist Lesia Sochor presents her exhibition Pysanka: Symbol of Renewal, on view March 21 – August 2, 2020.
The paintings of Lesia Sochor are narratives told in paint prompted by personal experiences. The Pysanka series evolved from her annual spring ritual of creating intricately decorated Ukrainian eggs known as pysanky. Depicting the symbolic meanings and traditional motifs in oils and watercolors spawned a new path of contemporary expression for this ancient art form. Lesia continues the tradition of Pysanky making, passed down by her Ukrainian immigrant mother. This beautiful, talismanic object is a direct link to her ancestral past and her roots.
