On Saturday, February 3rd , there will be an exhibition of paintings by Polina Barskaya in the Main Galleries.

My recent paintings are of my immediate surroundings. They are usually self-portraits or portraits of my husband in different moments of our daily life.

They are a kind of documentation, a way of examining, breaking apart, remembering, understanding the passing of time, and recording the stillness of private moments in a very fast paced isolating world.
