Event description
An examination of love from the female perspective

About this Event

Romantic, sexual, maternal, forbidden, self, broken and new – love is a roller-coaster of emotions that we all share. In this stunning exhibition of new works, premiered in London, Toma Stenko shares her exploration of what love means to her – the family, the couple, a mother keeping her baby close and a boy watching his mother are all portrayed in a kaleidoscope of colour.

But it’s not all sweetness, the viewer walks away with a bittersweet feeling – is love really all rainbows? This exhibition exposes the darker side – the censorsed, the oppressive and the betrayed. These are immensely powerful works.

Toma Stenko (b. 1980) is a Georgian-born and Moscow-based artist, film director, and fashion designer whose works in mixed media delve into the complex emotions of love. A graduate of St Martin’s, her work receives praise and a flourishing audience whenever it is exhibited. This is her first London exhibition.

How Love Feels will take place over two floors of the Painting Rooms, a Grade I listed venue just off Tottenham Court Road in central London.

ARTIST TALK: Wednesday, 18 March, 6:30-8:30, Toma Stenko in conversation with author and art critic Simon Hewitt, followed by a screening of a short film about the artist. RSVP requested
