The exhibition of series of paintings named "Butterfly Effect" refers to the popular hypothetical example of chaos theory which illustrates how small initial differences may lead to large unforseen consequences over time. This paintings collection is the visual reflection on the theme using as an inspiration a buttrefly and its geometric form, mirror reflecting sides, printed one on the other one, creating the endless chain of images in it. Metaphors of little matrix of the complex universe where everything is related from the past to the future in every domians and sides of the life...

Group exhibition "Passions dévoilées" in Gallery Villa Dutoit, 5 chemin Gilbert-Troillet, 1209 Petit-Saconnex, Geneva, Switzerland.

www.villadutoit.ch

The cycle of paintings called “The seventh heaven” is a reflexion about the sense of the happiness of the human being, about the spirit and the body, reflexion on the importance in our existence of beliefs, emotions and passions. The cycle is composed of 6 paintings (the number symbolizing Venus - goddess of love). The seventh picture, like the synonym of the seventh heaven, remains in imaginary, as individual answer to the question what is happiness for each one of us.

In Antiquity, people believed that the Earth was the centre of the world. The stars and the gods had been imagined in crystal spheres, each sphere representing a sky. There was then a sky for each planet, seven at whole. The last was that of stars, but behind him that of the gods hidden. People said that time, when there was pleasure with something, that it was " charmed with the haven".

The third sky was that of Venus, goddess of love, which explains why we say also " to be in third haven". However, after the theories of Galileo were shown, was kept phrase “to be in the seventh haven", to preserve a reference to the gods in organization of the stars. Seven is still the number of the transformation, sacrifice. The seventh heaven is where we wait to meet the Angels and God, only if this one is allowed…

Reinterpreted under the culture Judeo-Christian, which allotted to numbers 3 and 7 a strong symbolic value system, this vision of the skies regarded the seventh heaven as the paradise. To be in the seventh heaven means to be filled of happiness.

This turning draws its origin from the Christian, Muslim and Jewish traditions religious. In these three religions, is considered the existence of seven skies. They latter are not described at same manner but the symbolic system is very close: In the Jewish and Christian tradition, the seventh heaven, highest of the skies, is governed by the Michel archangel. It is the residence of God. It is said that the spirit of the human beings lives were not borned yet lives. In the Muslim tradition, the seventh heaven is the residence of the Abraham prophet.

Therefore, “being in seventh heaven”, it is to approach God, and consequently by extension, to test an intense happiness, to approach the supreme rapture… In addition to the seven skies, the number seven has an particular importance in the religion: the number of days necessary to God to create the world; The candlestick with seven branches; seven sacraments; the number of heads of the animal of the Apocalypse, seven deadly sins…

« souviens-toi de l’été »

“Galerie SMA” in Carouge, is pleased to announce the solo exhibition “souviens-toi de l’été” (remember summer) works by Olha Snydanko, Ukrainian artist-painter, actually living and working in Geneva. Landscapes always and still… Majestic mountains covered by the fog or painted in pink by the sun going down. Mysterious water of the sea. The endless fields brushed by the winds. The oxygen and the melancholy of one rainy day. Deep shadows of the thousand-year-old forests. A nearby garden which lives its small life by the seasons. The perfume of grass at night. A growing apple. A flower which opens at the spring - it is a whole symbol of the renaissance. How not to admire the genius matrix, creates by the Gods, which was and will always remain the source of creative inspiration. There is nothing that the human could invent without being inspired by nature. Why to talk about it, today it is not in fashion. However it’s out of fashion, therefore timeless.

Christmas less Orthodox

During the most festive period of the year - the period of Christmas, the artist devotes her personal exhibition to the theme of cultural identity. Whilst meditating in front of the images of winter nature, the artist invites the spectator to look inwards to his inner garden. This exhibition is dedicated to a reflection on what the individual preserves of his origins, of his traditions in a multinational and mixed environment. Like an uprooted plant finding itself swept with the four winds of life, he comes out from that experience transformed but also enriched and strengthened by the multiple influences of the cosmopolitan community. What would remain of singularity in today’s modern uniformed society?

During the last year, Olha Snydanko worked on a series of paintings exposed under the exhibition named “EXTENDED HORIZONS”. The idea of this collection is to bring our mind to the fragility of the nature and to the ecological problems of today. Should we have a new look on ourselves and the world which surrounds us? Should we extend our personal horizons for better understanding of ourselves, between the individuals and people, to avoid the self-destruction and the destruction of our Land, to see broader, further, to preserve Life, to see the beauty, which surrounds us, so close and so far, to understand the fragility of this world and to transmit this natural balance to the future generations, without pretending to control the nature, because the nature doesn’t need us, the Earth will exist with or without humanity.
