the artist

For as long as she can remember Aigana Gali has been inspired through her art to express the beauty she sees in nature and the world around her.

Born of Georgian & Kazakh decent, Aigana had a classical arts education & was raised in an artistic family on the ancient crossing on the Great Silk Road in Almaty, Kazakhstan. It’s dramatic landscapes and unique blend of Asian and European influences continue to transcend her work. 

Through bold, dramatic canvases and textile creations Aigana expresses a rare spirituality in which she explores the natural world, or invokes myths and legends from different cultures.

Leda

The main hero of the collection is Leda, queen of Sparta, who was seduced by almighty God Zeus. She gives birth to two eggs: one containing the sisters Helen and Clytemnestra, the other – the brothers Castor and Pollux. These names form the foundation of western mythology, the foundation of our psyche. 

Catharsis 

Catharsis is the term used by Aristotle to describe the psychological function in the tradition of tragic theatre, the climax of the tragedies brought upon the release of the tremendous pent-up energies of the audiences’ psyche. By the function of catharsis, the soul is released from its earthly bonds and ascends in pure form towards the union with the One.

The “Steppe” fine art show by Aigana Gali is a distinctive manifesto of the artist’s heritage, identity, and creative spirit. Long parted from her homeland of Kazakhstan, it is a contemplation of the artist’s cultural roots and her emotional attachment to a place she continues to long for.
