about

Marina Kapilova lives and works in Minsk (Belarus)
Graduated from the Academy of Arts, Minsk.

Marina Kapilova is a talent sprinkling up in all directions – sculpture (bronze, founding), ceramics, art metal (goldsmithery and decorative plastic arts), porcelain collectible dolls, easel and book graphic arts (lithography, calligraphic pens and pencils, watercolours), collage… Marina can pass from one plastic arts’ form or technique to another with equilibristic lightness. Marina Kapilova invented an original, highly expressive, a tad piquantly decadent style in which plastic observations’ subtlety is combined with romantically arabesque fantasy. Nowadays, her work’s priority directions are sculpture and lithography. Her sculptures and graphic oeuvre are marked by a sharp, almost grotesque sense of form and plastic structure. She is absolutely free when it comes to angles, powerful and sniper’s precise contours, as well as bold decorative “syncopations”. Thanks to her cooperation with Dmitry Molotkov, one of the most experienced masters-typographers, in some cases Kapilova's lithography prints are unique from a technique point of view.
