Tamara Ivanova`s work is very much in the Russian Tradition. One finds the Spirit of constructivists like Malevich in her graphic works, with a touch of humor added. Her color works are in romantic european manner.
She started making works with copier several years ago, developing her own technique.
She is a part of new movement that enlists new technologies to alter and transmit personal visions. In her rapid development her strength and determination are visible.

Press-Release for Exhibition “Synonimous Structures”
Tamara Ivanova works both in new and traditional art forms, from ironic imitations of folk genres to the creation of objects from found decorative materials. This absence of stilistic limits reflects the borderless habitat of the artists soul. Like a sensitive seisographic instrument, she registers the trembling of reality at the moment of its penetration by mysterious beings from the spirit world, which use the texture of our everyday lives for their ephemeral bodies' materialization.
