An exhibition of works by Ekaterina Smirnova will include a series of large scale watercolor paintings. Through her work, Ekaterina explores the relationship of humanity with the universe, investigating our place as human beings in an infinite space. You will find mysterious clusters of stars, the evening lights of a megapolis and various enigmas of light in nature. Ekaterina’s work is often inspired by science. In 2016 she had a solo show at the European Space Agency (ESA), participated two science symposiums and gave talks at NASA and ESA. During this exhibition you will be able to not only see her latest science-inspired pieces, but also experience augmented reality to explore the invisible.
