Zantman Art Galleries in Palm Desert, California presents Larissa Morais
in a solo exhibition entitled Contemporary Realism. The show opens on
January 27, 2007. I grew up fascinated by the expressiveness of the arts
of Ancient Greece and Italy. As a result, in my own art, I explore the
lives of the instincts and desires, myths and symbols, dreams and
liberated sexuality.All of that as a reflection of our times, states
Larissa Morais, who has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at
absolutearts.com since 2005.
Larissa Morais work can be viewed in her Portfolio at:
Born 1966 Ð Moscow, Russia.
BFA, Moscow Theatrical Arts Institute
Graduate School of Restoration and Conservation.
Sculpture courses at Serguey Gaydukov Studio.
Extensive course of Copying Techniques at the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts.
Morais has exhibited throughout Europe, North America and Australia. Her
work is included in significant private collections including that of the
Brazilian Embassy in Moscow.
LUMEN MORTALE COLLECTION
"Lumen Mortale" is Latin for "Mortal Light", an inversion of the Biblical
phrase "Lux Eterna", which means "Eternal Light". The works explore the
inherent sadness of painting perfect bodies that will one day change and
wither. Instead of the eternal light of the soul, the works exalt the fleeting
light of bodily existence.
Zantman Art Galleries continues its tradition since 1974 with their
gallery in Palm Desert, California on the prestigious El Paseo street.
Zantman Art Galleries have become nationally and internationally known by
knowledgeable art collectors because of the consistency of high quality
and the wide ranging styles in the paintings by prominent artists from
America, France, Italy, Spain, China, Korea, and other areas of the world.
There are unique and affordable paintings, sculptures, abstract for all
collectors, including corporate collections. Every visitor is welcomed by
our courteous and knowledgeable staff and is invited to browse in
exquisitely laid-out rooms. The atmosphere is one of beauty, warmth and
graciousness. Exhibitions change frequently, not only to offer artworks
of contrasting styles and media, but also to acquaint our visitors/clients
with the latest works of our artists as well as with up and coming trends
in living art today.
