Alan Simmons Art + Design, a fine art gallery and consultancy, hosts Yelizaveta Nersesova at "Artist Talk 1415 Slocum" this Saturday, June 1, 2013, 2:00 – 3:30 PM, 214-745-ALAN (2526), Dallas Design District. Ms. Nersesova will discuss her latest painting collection, "Ephemeral Dreamings” and current show at the gallery.

On May 18, 2013, Alan Simmons Art + Design hosted a reception and gallery debut solo show for Ms. Nersesova. The response was most impressive. She has received resounding acclaim from collectors, critics, and the general public. The exhibition will continue through Saturday, June 22, 2013.

Ms. Nersesova’s art work is influenced by her experiences growing up in different countries, notably, Africa and Russia. Born in Iran, she spent her childhood in Africa and early teenage years in Russia. At the age of 14, Ms. Nersesova and her family relocated to Dallas, Texas.

"Ephemeral Dreamings" is influenced by African and Aboriginal art. The title, "Dreamings," for example, is derived from Aboriginal mythology. Ms. Nersesova's paintings combine imagery that is both traumatic and beautiful. She chooses colors that do not necessarily harmonize with each other uses constant layering and transparency. The lines in her art are nature-like, offering microscopic and macroscopic viewpoints.

Ms. Nersesova received a B.F.A in Studio Art and Art History from the University of North Texas, 2005 (Magna Cum Laude); M.F.A. in Drawing and Painting, Southern Methodist University, 2007; M.A in Art History, University of North Texas, 2008.
