5. Ella Kruglyanskaya

Featuring paintings spanning the past ten years of the artist’s life and work - Tramway presents Ella Kruglyanskaya in collaboration with Tate Liverpool.

Kruglyanskaya’s paintings immerse viewers in a bold world of saturated colours and high contrast patterns, populated almost exclusively by women caught in moments of dramatic tension. Her works feature imagined characters framed in scenes of pleasure and conflict, acknowledging the long and contentious history of representing women in visual culture. Female relationships, friendships and dialogues form the foundation of the artist’s varied subject matters.” - Tramway.org

When: November 1st - December 11th 2016

Where: Tramway, 25 Albert Drive, Glasgow, G41 2PE

Price: Free
