“The Magical World of Ilya Schar”


“Each artwork is remarkable in its precision, passion, and beauty.”


~ GIA’s ( Gemological Institute of America ) Museum Director

“A Gem of a Painting”


“Paintings are some of the last handmade and therefore valuable objects in our culture. This is even truer when the paint is replaced with gemstones.”


~ Simone Cappa, NY Arts.

“Last Chance: Ilya Schar’s Mortal Colors”


“In our moment of history, the painter who grinds his own pigment from minerals is making a gesture of self-definition. It is a gesture of dissent from mass-production, as is painting altogether. And one of Schar’s greatest strengths is his independence and power as a colorist.


Similarly, Redon’s late-nineteenth century flower paintings are a last bloom of the natural accord between human beings and the biosphere, but here is the same fascination and intimacy of those pictures in the flower paintings of Ilya Schar. It’s as if these great moments in European painting, prior to the Second and the First World Wars respectively, were reborn in the work of an original new painter.”


~ Jamey Hecht, New York Arts Magazine.

“Ilya Schar Returns Glamour to Broadway”


“The ten visceral, gleaming images currently on display at Broadway Gallery have all the gusto and brilliance of Gauguin’s tropical masterpieces. Schar courageously embraces an unlikely material and celebrates the possibilities of his newfound medium.”


~ Annie Poon, NY Arts.
