> PROVIDENCE, RI -- Rebecca Volynsky will have mixed media public art pieces on exhibition at the following locations during PVDFest (June 1 - 4). Artwork will be installed May 27 and taken down June 18.
> 46 Aborn Street, Downcity Providence (wheat-pasted, in partnership with Cornish Associates)
> 705 Westminster Street (window display, in partnership with New Urban Arts)
> 814 Hope Street (wheat-pasted, in partnership with the Hope Street Merchants Association)
> Snow Street, Downcity Providence (in partnership and under the creative direction of The Dean Hotel and Kelly Knapp/Studio KCK for “Fountain Street Hooligans”)
> These artworks, collectively titled 'Cultivate, Then Bloom', portray mixed media floral paintings inspired by Russian folk art and botanical illustration. Volynsky draws from past memories and moments to inform new ones, acting as new landscapes in the artwork for viewers to explore. This work is a form of visual storytelling that conveys fragmented memories and moments of interaction through the layering of mixed media. As experiences of joy and beauty often naturally fade but leave a positive impression - so do the intentions and physicality of these artworks.
> The themes and symbolic elements in Rebecca Volynsky’s pieces revolve around the ideas of strength and personal growth. Volynsky’s visual art is influenced by life experiences and relationships, mental health, Russian folk art, lively color, and organic shapes/color found in nature. Her creative practice has always focused on setting positive intentions through art making and cultivating what you have in the present to create a better future and grow. She currently lives and works in Providence, Rhode Island.
> This project is made possible by the Providence Art, Culture, and Tourism Department. In it’s third year, PVDFest is expected to attract nearly 75,000 people and 504 artists to the Downcity area of Providence from June 1 - 4 as a multi-arts takeover of public space. Our great city has a vast cultural and arts community, and PVDFest truly brings the art world closer and more accessible to our neighborhoods.
