Nov 22 – Dec 21, 2019

MIYAKO YOSHINAGA is pleased to present the solo exhibition entitled Between Four Mountains by Yana Dimitrova(b.1983), a New York-based, Bulgarian-born painter and mixed-media artist. This is the artist’s third solo presentation at the gallery and the inaugural exhibition at its new Upper East Side location (24 East 64thStreet). The exhibition will run from November 22 to December 21, 2019.  An artist reception will be held on Friday, November 22nd from 6pm to 8pm.

Yana Dimitrova is a classically trained painter informed by contemporary theory and practice. Her work explores the interplay between artist, subject and viewer. For Dimitrova, her work is a conduit of her life as an immigrant and an artist – ideas around arriving and leaving behind, family and culture. Painting is a universal voice that can empower human experience and provide a sense of universality. “I hope to build onto the capacity of painting as a social medium, whilst creating a platform for interpersonal and collective agency.”
