Über:

Am 25. Juni ab 16:00 Uhr präsentiert die Galerie SLP die Künstlerin Veronika Cherednychenko aus Lviv, Ukraine, und ihre Einzelausstellung The First Week. 

Als wir diese Ausstellung planten, veränderte sich das Leben von Millionen von Menschen in der Ukraine, und für Cherednychenko bedeutete dies, dass ihr friedliches Leben in Lviv nie wieder so sein würde wie zuvor. Dieses Werk entstand inmitten des Chaos eines herannahenden Krieges und der beängstigenden Geräusche von Luftangriffsalarmen. Ihre surrealistischen Zeichnungen zeigen ihre tiefsten und dunkelsten Gefühle, die sie in den ersten Tagen des Krieges erlebte.

Statement des Künstlers:

"Wenige Monate vor Ausbruch des Krieges war die ukrainische Gesellschaft in Erwartung. Gespräche in engen Familienkreisen und unter Freunden beschränkten sich auf Diskussionen über die Wahrscheinlichkeit des Krieges. Die Spannung nahm allmählich zu, so dass ich beschloss, eine Reihe von Werken zu schaffen, die diesem Zustand - einem Zustand der Erwartung - gewidmet sind und über die heutigen Ereignisse reflektieren. Leider hatte ich nicht genug Zeit, und so begann ich die Serie in der ersten Woche des Krieges, als das einzige, was noch zu erwarten war, der morgige Tag war. In den vorliegenden Zeichnungen geht es also um die ersten Tage, um meine persönlichen Gefühle, um Beklemmung und Angst. Arbeit hilft den Menschen immer, Schwierigkeiten und schwierige Momente im Leben zu überstehen, und Künstler sind da keine Ausnahme. Also arbeite ich weiter und glaube an unseren Sieg" 
- Veronika Cherednychenko

About:
On June 25th from 4:00pm Galerie SLP showcases artists Veronika Cherednychenko from Lviv, Ukraine and her Solo exhibition The First Week
As we planned this exhibition the lives of millions of people were transformed in Ukraine, and for Cherednychenko this meant life as she knew it would never be the same as her peaceful life in Lviv turned to survival mode. This body of work was created inside the chaos of an incoming war and the chilling sounds of air raid alarms. Her surrealist drawings depict her deepest and darkest feelings experienced during the first days of the war.
Artist Statement:
“A few months before the start of this war Ukrainian society was in anticipation. Conversations in close family circles and between friends were reduced to discussions about the likelihood of the war. Tension was gradually increasing so I decided to make a series of works dedicated to this state – a state of expectation – and reflect on today’s events. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough time, so I started the series in the first week of the war when the only thing left to expect was tomorrow. So the presented drawings are all about first days, my personal feelings, anxiety and fear. Work always helps people to go through difficulties, difficult moments in life, and artists are not an exception. So I continue to work and believe in our victory” - Veronika Cherednychenko

ARBOREAL IMPULSE BY PRAYER TEXTILE 
About: 
Arboreal Impulse is a textile art exhibition that explores the relationship between modern human tribes and nature.       The things that we value are constantly changing depending on the environment we find ourselves in. People become more distant from one another and individualism is valued over community unlike the vines from plants and trees that intertwine and lace together. In this collection we are creating a sense of tribal cohesion through this limited edition screen print on fabric. 
Artist Statement: 
“I believe that art is a thing of beauty that can transfer a feeling of joy when received by the viewer.” Apirom 
Apirom believes that art can be found virtually anywhere when looked for. A refreshing drink created from handpicked ingredients, if appreciated, is art because it was purposefully put together for someone’s feeling of happiness. 

Artist Bio: 
Born in 1986 in Chiang Mai, Thailand, Apirom Somlit Graduated from Rajamagala University of Technology Lanna with a BA in Fine arts. A trained painter, he has been the resident artist and designer at Prayer Textile Gallery for 10 years. This collection, ‘Arboreal Impulse’, is inspired by paintings created by the late Marisa Buerkle, co-founder and creative director of Prayer Textile Gallery, without whom Apirom would not have developed a love of textiles.
