Larisa Pilinsky Paintings
Born in the remote mountains of central Asia,Lark (Larisa Pilinsky) grew up in Ukraine and studied art in Russia. She first became known for her work with the award-winning Bunker Art Group of Armenia —“fellow rebels in abstraction” against Soviet artistic repression. Since emigrating to the United States in 1991, Lark has been recognized by respected critics and dealers. Her assemblages and, more recently, her paintings, have been featured in more than 30 solo and group shows including the Nickelodeon Animation Studios, the Avatar Art Gallery, the Swedish-American Museum of Art, and the Museums of Contemporary Art in Armenia and Russia. Lark’s work has been selected through juried competitions by the SoHo International Art Competition and the Foundation of Collage Artists of America.Lark creates assemblages by recycling found objects and processing them through spiritual meditation, encouraging images to appear out of her subconscious, awakening both familiar and unfamiliar thoughts in viewers. Learning about her materials by exploring both their formal and their narrative qualities, she simultaneously reformulates them according to her deeply emotional, poetically romantic sense of beauty.Their original functions discarded, their origins long forgotten, the objects she engages and interacts with are free to play imagined roles, resonating within one another and telling countless tales.

Artist's Statement:
The freedom to create. Such a beautiful abstract idea—the fairy bird of my dreams! I made the first step to catch it: I became an artist. I stepped into the unknown, leaving behind the safety of blending with the surroundings.I have the courage to take the next step—to shutter the white silence of a new canvas or cardboard into chaos—and then find the courage to create from it my own small universe. When there is harmony in this newly created world, I find joy. When there is not, sorrow finds me and I return my creation back into chaos.I pull myself up, as Baron Munchausen did, to free my roots. I lift my feet up from the soil and become a lark. At this moment I soar through time between earth and heaven, breathing happily the air of revelation. I have been lucky to receive this great gift of inspiration and to survive the pain of missing it when I must fall back into the routine of everyday life.I managed to save my childish, mischievous ways of playing with objects, giving them a new mysterious meaning. I love cutting credit cards—ugly symbols of financial power—in small parts and using them again to build kaleidoscopes of colors and shapes which, if put in proper combinations, shine suddenly with shy spiritual beauty.But cutting credit cards and even money does not really free my wings nailed on the cross of material reality. So I brought my creations to art galleries, stepping inside as if stepping inside temples. What I found, however, were big market places where thousands waited in line to display and sell their art.And yet…I still hold onto my freedom to create—my fiery fairy bird. What torture and what bliss to be caught in its flames!
