Larissa Smagarinksy – Australian Artist
Celebrated Bronze Sculptor

Drawing inspiration from diverse sources—be it the pages of the Bible, echoes from ancient history, resonances of modern events, or the depths of human emotions—Larissa Smagarinsky’s work resonates with multifaceted themes. Central to her artistic exploration is the human body, whether in serene repose or dynamic motion. Movement, especially in the context of dance, captivates her imagination, resulting in sculpture that exude life and energy.

Additionally, Smagarinsky’s oeuvre delves into the complexities of love, spanning the spectrum from the highly sensual to the tender bonds of maternal and filial affection. Her art narrates stories of love derived from mythology, intertwining seamlessly with contemporary expressions. Through her sculptures, she immortalizes these diverse facets of love, offering viewers a poetic glimpse into the timeless and universal essence of human emotion.

To me it is very important to leave something worthy behind, A mark in the world. We are living Ideas, thoughts and creations—where you are at your best.

As a teenager her talent was recognised and she graduated from the institute of Art at St Petersburg followed by a master’s degree in architectural and decorative sculpture.
Smagarinsky specialises in monumental public artworks, landmark sculptures and busts. Since arriving in Australia, Smagarinsky has developed both semi-figurative and abstract forms.
At one level the Soviet Union was kind to the artist, offering plenty of opportunity she is well represented in Moscow and St Petersburg.  But at a deeper level there was little scope for spirit in the Soviet system. So it happened that twenty years ago Larissa opted for spirit over security. She came to Australia. She did not realise however that for the artist in Australia freedom of expression comes at a price of a very precarious livelihood. Even so her work is represented on permanent display in Australia and internationally.
