“Colors Through Gates” Paintings by Taras Borovyk at the Harrison Public Library

Harrison Council for the Arts presents “Colors Through Gates” paintings by Taras Borovyk at the Harrison Public Library, 2 Bruce Avenue, Harrison, NY on view September 30 to October 27; meet the artist October 6 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.  This exhibit consists of cityscapes of Mr. Borovyk’s hometown of Lviv, Ukraine

Taras Borovyk works in a wide array of media, from acrylic on cork to oil on canvas to wood and metal sculpture. His work is often highly saturated, smooth lines of color layering and surrounding one another in fractured views of the world. Vivid pigments layer over one another to create compositions that render architecture in vivid orange and silver, or trees in crisp red in front of soft blocks of green to build the silhouettes of city buildings. Borovyk’s paintings have a quality like woodblock: small, sharp strokes interfere with portions of color unexpectedly as planes of pigment mingle and, at the same time, are sharply delineated. Selectively thick brushstrokes or cork board shapes interfere with this flat, faceted, and imaginative use of color.

“I do not create art unless it creates itself as I work,” Borovyk says. For him, the work in a way creates itself, both as he paints or sculpts and as viewers return again and again with new interpretations.

Growing up in Lviv, Ukraine, Taras Borovyk was surrounded by Austrian, Polish, Russian, and Ukrainian architecture and art, influences of which can be found in his bold hues and eye for architecture.

Mr. Borovyk graduated from Lviv’s (Ukraine) Art School and Lviv’s (Ukraine) College of Applied Arts in 1994.  He is a self-employed artist of contemporary oil paintings, sculpture and installations as well as interior designer; exposition designer; muralist and decorative painter.  He has exhibited in solo and group shows in  Lviv, Ukraine; New York; Connecticut and  Chicago.

The exhibit may be viewed Mondays and Wednesdays 9:30am to 9:00pm; Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays 9:30am to 5:30pm and Sundays 1:00pm to 5:00pm.  For info call the Library 914-835-0324 or see harrisonpl.org.
