“To me magic is an ability to bring a dream, a hope of an ideal reality into everyday life. Through my paintings I transport myself over to the forgotten world, bringing my dreams to life and claim them as my own”.
Aida Emelyanova (February 2010)
Of Kazakh-Russian birth, Aida is a London-based artist and recent graduate from Chelsea School of Art and Design, whose artwork is fast emerging as a highlight of the capital's flourishing art-scene.
Her work is a fusion of installation artwork and canvas in which her atmosphere-laden installations create an absorbing and experiential enviroment, expanding the landscape/vista and meaning of her painting.
For Aida, art is passive for neither the artist or the viewer; it is a relationship of understanding and interpretation, a sharing of memory, space and experience
that is transformative, both externally and internally.
