Sanya Kantarovsky

oil, watercolor, pastel, and charcoal on linen
30 x 24 inches

The fairytale-like works of Moscow-born artist Sanya Kantarovsky seem to illustrate stories unknown to the viewer. The female character in Crocodile III (After L’Alpha et L’Omega) holds a small piece of fruit above a smiling crocodile, either tempting him with a treat or resisting his demand for it. Oil paint and watercolor create texture within the charcoal and pastel outlines of the curving shapes of the woman and animal, resulting in a sensuous, allegorical work. Living and working in New York, Kanatarovsky has exhibited throughout Europe and the US.
