Jewellery isn’t the only place you can put your gemstones and as artist Aliona Gordon has proven, it’s just as beautiful! With the usage of natural minerals and gemstones, Gordon creates stunning works of fine art through ancient technique and a sharp eye.
Born and based in Belarus, Minsk, Gordon graduated from Minsk Glebov Fine Arts College in 1994 with a major in painting. She is a member of the International Artists Union, Master-Mirotvorec.
Aliona Gordon has developed and perfected a unique technique of painting: the image is created by fixing of flattened gems on a thin plate of white marble.
The usage of natural minerals dates back to the Middle Age, when they were applied both as adornment and as a color. Ancient wall paintings and icons saved their fast colors at the laps of centuries. “Mineral Painting” has been known for ages and it still remains a know-how.
“People are usually stunned and surprised when they learn that the pieces of art which seemed to be classical paintings are in fact made from gems and semi-precious stones”, says Gordon.
We are proud to exclusively offer Gemstone Art by Aliona Gordon here at Linara, where we believe in only the finest quality.
With Gordon’s experience in artisanal methods, we are pleased to showcase a number of works both for the lover of aesthetics and for those who would like a classical tribute in religious memento.
