About the Event
Asya grew up in the South of France where her early love of color came from the lavender sunsets, green vineyards, and red poppy fields.
These, the colors of Summers in Provence – fresh, lush, and passionate – are what seduce and fill her palette.
Years in fashion immersed in the feminine ideal, the expression of beauty in the faces of countless women as well as the recurring subject of the ephemeral passage of youth fascinate her and is a theme she explores and returns to often.
Sharing her life between Provence and her home in Asheville makes for a contrast and harmony of landscape and subject matter that is poetic. “Living in the Blue Ridge Mountains is the perfect complement to my country life in France.”
Using acrylic and mixed techniques on canvases sometimes dinged and patched, Asya expresses her interest in the processes and transformations of that which surrounds her with her distinct, bold, elegant style that merges abstract with the representational.
