A Rose in the Garden
Monoprint 15 x 11, 2010
Natalia Koren Kropf was born and raised in St.Petersburg, Russia in a family of artists. Although she lives and works in New York City for a couple of decades, her art is inspired by nature, by its endless variation, by its cohesiveness and by its casual simplicity highlighting a moment of time and its timelessness. In her work she studies a line, a silhuette, a gesture, a color that affect the mood, the implicit meaning of a scene, visualizing a line of poetry, creating an atmosphere of pensive surroundings and tranquil reflections. Natalia believes that her art provides a sensory relief for an urban dweller, overstimulated and eventually fatigued by colors, sounds and a structured daily schedule. The artist is eager to share this spiritually empowering passion for natural beauty with everyday public spaces or homes. Commissions for private residences and site specific interior projects are welcomed.
Born and raised in St.Petersburg, Russia. Lives and works in New York City since 1992.
