The five lithographs by Maria Pomiansky show urban landscapes and scenes from the Zurich art milieu: the Hardbrücke with a view of the Prime Tower, a tram stop on Bleicherweg, a view from the window of the Kunsthalle Zurich, a vernissage and an art performance. The carefully selected, detailed excerpts may be reminiscent of snapshots casually taken with a mobile phone. The artist cultivates a playful approach to perspective and angle, which gives these snapshots a spontaneous, subjective character. Maria Pomiansky skilfully breathes atmosphere into her pictures through strong, expressive brushstrokes and a colourful palette. With these stylistic means she makes objects and architectural structures seem alive

Since her arrival in Zurich in 2003, Maria Pomiansky has established herself as a city chronicler who paints and draws. Born in Moscow, the artist is interested in themes such as uprooting and new beginnings, urban landscapes, interiors and people. Since 2015 she has been painting the Zurich West quarter. The work cycle "100 % Renaissance" emerged from this examination, which reflects a colourful, atmospheric image of this district and, like the works in the current edition, has a documentary and photographic character and at the same time an expressive and subjective one

Galerie Alex Schlesinger dedicated a solo exhibition to Maria Pomiansky's "Züri-West" series in 2018, and in the same year Pomiansky designed all the covers of the architecture magazine "werk, bauen + wohnen". In 2019 the artist took part in group exhibitions in various institutions, including the Musée jurassien des Arts in Moutier, the Haus zur Glocke in Steckborn and the Raum für Malerei in Zurich.
