„Paint what you see…“
“Paint what you see, don’t see – don’t paint without feeling the nature’s sympathy.
My sketches are the transition states, half-states, emotion, which starts originating inside of me and grips me deeper and deeper. This is a happiness feeling that here and now, the captured moment in colour and even in the motion. I try to paint what I see and what I feel but at the same time I should heart it. This is a great importance to me.
In the “flower series” I do not aim at the laconism but try to paint the variety of the colors combining them into the flickering and joyful complex compositions. The flower “portraits” are painted from nature in the natural angles and in the wind motions. I wanted for the viewers to see my flower paintings alive and with the elements of sentimentalism – paintings “Wild flowers” (2018), “Spring rhapsody” (2016), "Sky flowers" (2018). After all the painted flowers will live for ever…
Painter from Saint-Petersburg, Russia. My art style can be attributed to Fauvism, especially early works. Then as now I tend more towards realism with elements of expressionism and abstract expressionism.
Nowadays my attention is focused on the unveiling the beauty of the world in its moments – the full-blown flower bud, the surf, the energy of a dance. These are the certain freeze frames, the elements of “slow living”, the moments, which are needed to be slowed down in order to gain much insight. And to paint the only thing, where one “feels the sympathy for nature”.
