OF FALLING STARS
Ljudmilla Swarczewskaja (Estonia)
September 9 - October 15, 2017
celebrated textile artist Ljudmilla
Swarczewskaja surprises us with her new
trend which includes 34 collages in mixed
media. The title In Search of Falling Stars
originates frm the poetry of Jaan Kaplinski.
of Swarczewskaja’s artworks are always
varied, the most fruitful of which have been
encounterers with fine arts: music,
literature, film, theatre, architecture,
painting. Amidst various feelings she
benefits from her own aesthetic preferences,
strong emotional impressions stimulate her
creative growth. Ljudmilla believes that
intellect transforms matter and that
emergence of spontaneous thought always
remains in the hands of an artist.
the present exhibition was born by meeting
with Leo Rohlin and his collages. Rohlin
used fragments from his old landscape
aquarelles. Like Rohlin, Ljudmilla used her
archive stores to create new artworks.
The new compositions are milestones of
emotional tension on the way to eternity.
Swarczewskaja was born in Northern Ossetia
and graduated from Estonian Art Academy in
15 years she made her living in Estonian
textile industry. Since 1994 Ljudmilla has
been lecturer of art and freelancer artist,
a member of Estonian Artists’Society and
Estonian Textile Artists’ Society. She has
shown her artworks on exhibitions since
1977, in Estonia as well as abroad.
More than 100
of her textile patterns are kept in the
Museum of Estonian Applied Art and Design.
Her artworks can be found in many private
collections of Estonia and Europe. Her huge
artwork named Athletics (2010) adorns the
Sports Hall of Pärnu.
In Search of
Falling Stars is supported by the Town of
Pärnu and the Estonian Cultural Endowment.
