SPIRIT OF HAWAII

Opening: 5 MAY 2011 - Closing: 1 SEPTEMBER 2011

SPIRIT OF HAWAII

 

 

If you are already familiar with the bold, color-saturated paintings of Ana Tzarev, her new Installation, Spirit of Hawaii, will not disappoint you.

 

Her customary Thick-Impasto of Oil-Paints—Windsor & Newton must be getting Rich!—runs riot in depicting Hula-Dancers & Coffee-Bean-Harvesters in-motion.

 

Oddly enough, all Tzarev’s Hawaiians seem to have Flattened-Noses. When you go to one of the Hawaiian-Islands, you won’t find so many Natives actually looking like that…

 

This through-running Nose-Convention is, however, excused by a Commentator who suggests that this owing to Ana’s distinctive Naïve-Vision.

 

Especially interesting are the artworks that deal with Hawaii’s Deposed-Monarchy. Queen Lili’uokalani is seen making a Quilt-of-Memories. She is most remembered as the author of the beloved song, Aloha.

 

Unfortunately for Hawaii’s Royal-House, it interfered with America’s Manifest-Destiny, under which it was deemed Necessary for Hawaii to become a Territory, like Alaska.

 

Not to overlook its Importance as the Birthplace of the current President of the United-States!
