Announcing Yuroz’s 1st Serigraph of 2016 – “Dance with the Pomegranates”

Creating heirloom work with time-honored techniques and archival qualities that celebrate the basic human conditions and emotions has been the backbone of Yuroz’s work at Yuroz Art Studios. It is with great pleasure we announce the release of our first serigraph of 2016, titled Dance with the Pomegranates.  Finished with 23 karat gold leaf, limited edition of 75, 50 x 32 inches (127 x 81.3 cm), Yuroz offered a select few with individual water color hand painted by the artist himself.

Dance with the Pomegranates is amongst the series of images in Yuroz ICONO Collection created by the artist after studying European, Byzantine and Russian iconography. Centuries of accumulated traditions were captured by iconography of the ancient world. Mythological Renaissance paintings revived and developed iconography with its own conventions. The images created in this branch of art present an incredible sense of balance between a palette of basic colors and the multi-dimensional coalescing of simple lines, curves and shades.

Yuroz notes, “Every piece of work in this genre exudes elegance and glamor accentuated by the warmth from the gold surface. I was drawn to it and felt compelled to infuse my knowledge and skills with elements from that genre, morphing my work to a new magnitude while hopefully preserving my core message to continue to celebrate the human spirit.”

Dance with the Pomegranates honors the connection between a man and a woman and exemplifies the quintessence of their togetherness.  With pomegranates in her hands, she offers power and her fertile strength.  She dances almost in ecstasy under the music composed by his creative spirit.  Seemingly in a state of trance, still with her eyes wide open, she connects her feminine delicacy to the tapestry of his dreams.

He serenades his love, playing music of their connected souls.  With love so strong, the guitar needs no strings, as he strums music discernible only his lover.  United in their thoughts, the man and woman yearn to taste the fruit of their passion from their perpetual cycle of love.

Serigraphs are printed on acid free 4-ply museum boards. The printing is done by using the hand-printed serigraph method. Hand printing serigraphy uses ink that has been around for a long time, guaranteeing the longevity and stability of the color of the artwork. Each print is curated by a master printer. 23k gold leaf is applied by hand at the end of the process to each individual print.
