Varvara Fern, NSS, Solo Exhibition
Newly Elected NSS member, Varvara Fern, has sculptures on exhibit at Crown of Creation in Philadelphia, PA. The show features her travel compositions. “My work reflects my fascination with movement and my lifelong love-affair with the beauty of road landscapes,” begins Fern. “I’ve been traveling the entire world since I was thirteen. These voyages became one of the main sources of my inspiration and defined my art. This experience also convinced me that travel is a great way to shift one’s life into a different direction. A person can always find something new in a journey. Maybe even happiness. In my work I show people beginning their travel from trauma and unhappiness to finding themselves and reaching harmony. My journeys also taught me to see the beauty in road landscapes. They come in many amazing forms: roads, trains, railways, highways, utility poles… All these things have incredibly beautiful shapes.” The show is up the entire month of February at the downtown Philadelphia venue.
