Sublime paintings of intimate home spaces by Ekaterina Popova

Exploring intimate home spaces, often ornamented with plants, and our deep feelings commonly related to them, Russian artist Ekaterina Popova paints sublime pictures that lead us to reflective, sentimental, and daydream moments.

For the past few years, I have been exploring interiors in my work. The interest started as a way for me to reflect on my upbringing in Russia, but eventually progressed to exploring the overall idea of “home” and what it means me now. The work has slowly evolved from being reflective and sentimental to being mindful and present in my current environment. I repeatedly paint my own bedroom, visit other people’s houses, and use reference photos submitted to me by others online. My paintings include messy rooms, intimate items, and objects that refer to human presence without including the figure. I pick up on the subtle tones, lighting, and mood of each location in order to capture the emotion I associate with the space and then exaggerate the color to create a dream-like image.
