The Artist

Call Me Mila

Ludmila Pawlowska was born in exile.

When Joseph Stalin took power in Russia in the 1920s, he started pushing troublesome people – teachers, artists, intellectuals, ethnic groups – far away from the country’s center of power.

Everyone knows about the gulags in Siberia, but that wasn’t the only place of exile in the Soviet Union. Kazakhstan, the biggest and most remote of the “stans,” was another. Ludmila’s Kazak home, the city of Karaganda, was hundreds of miles from any other urban area.

It was a mid-sized city – about a million population today – and it was full of highly educated exiles, culture and good schools, where teachers spotted her early as a born artist.

View Through the Prism of a Sacred Space

Icons In Transformation, a dramatic 100-piece major art exhibition, can be visited March 5 through May 7, 2017. This traveling exhibition — viewed by over 200,000 people in museums and cathedrals in both Europe and the United States — features the contemporary work of internationally acclaimed Russian-Swedish abstract expressionist Ludmila Pawlowska.

Pawlowska’s distinctive technique includes painting, installation and sculpture using collage on wood panel and presents traditional Russian icons as a source of inspiration for contemporary art. The exhibit will feature 15 traditional icons painted at the workshop of Vassilevsky Monastery in Suzdal, Russia. The works on view will also include 12 large sculptural pieces. Her work is designed to be viewed through the prism of a sacred space, creating a stunning and dramatic visual expression.

The exhibit space — in itself an expression of the creative artistry of legendary San Diego architect Robert Mosher — was completed in 1969 and is considered a classic of mid-century modern design. It’s unique hexagonal shape was determined by the topography of it's corner lot with a simple cross located at the point where the six points of the hexagon converge. Architect Mosher once stated that this space was his favorite of all the buildings he had designed.
