Kruglyanskaya’s paintings immerse viewers in a bold world of saturated colours and high contrast patterns. Female relationships, friendships and dialogues form the foundation of the artist’s varied subject matters. Her practice engages with many often-‐‑ overlooked styles, techniques and formal concerns from the history of painting, such as her use of egg tempera. Working in a style that combines the graphic and the painterly, Kruglyanskaya embraces a wide range of influences from German expressionism to film and popular culture of the 1950s and 1960s.
