Maria Calandra visits the studio of painter Yevgeniya Baras.

Calandra writes: "Baras' painted lines, tactile textural build up, and recurring color themes carry through from one work to the next, but for the most part each painting exists in a category of its own. They bring to mind the stream of consciousness marks on Miro's canvases, or the early cubist constructions that broke the confines of reality and convention... The sense of freedom that I get from not only seeing the work, but also imagining her experience making it, gives me endless pleasure."
