About Zolita Sverdlove

Zolita Sverdlove was a notable 20th century impressionist. Her work utilizes rich color and she captures the majesty of her surroundings. Zolita Sverdlove received her B.F.A. from the Cooper Union Art School. She also studied with Richard Diebenkorn at the San Francisco Art Institute. Her paintings are in numerous collections, including the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts, and the Owens-Corning Collection of the Toledo, Ohio Museum. Her paintings have been shown in numerous venues, including the Allan Stone Gallery, and the Cooper Union. Many of her art works over the past decade are oil paintings, watercolors and graphics of California landscapes, particularly of the San Gabriel Valley, the Pasadena area looking northward to the San Gabriel mountains and southward to the buildings of downtown Los Angeles in the distance. Other paintings represent the California coast from Orange County to Monterey.

Artist Statement



Statement by the artist about her work

The landscape of California is both breathtaking and ominous. Freaky things happen in Nature here.

What interests me are creepy skies over the mountains that make the mountains into something out of the Hobbitt.

What should not be happens in reality: postcard sunsets, crescent moons that hang at the wrong angle, harvest moons, clusters of jeweled lights, glittering palms under black skies, red sunsets with purple black water glittering under the clouds.

I am fascinated with the ever-changing, dramatic expanses of color and light.
My work is involved with both the gorgeous and creepy, the awesome and the frightening.
I like to deal with the real that appears unreal. This dichotomy: What is real? What is unreal? This is the essence of my work.
