I really believe that what we need is Bliss… Born in Leningrad (Russia), I have been living in the UK since 2003. I finished Art School a long time ago, then I studied history and literature at University. After moving to the UK I returned to painting in 2004, inspired by local nature and my own dreams. I’ve decided to come back. To come back to myself. I am interested in expressing my feelings through the medium of colour and I am also attracted by different possibilities afforded by acrylic paints and mixed media. My paintings reflect a world of dreams, where cosmic and human reality intermingle, and the barriers between real and surreal world dissolve. When you look at my painting you will definitely notice dominant bluish shades along with bright sparkling dots of light. Bluish shades are dominant, as from my viewpoint, they have a mystical quality and spiritual sensitivity perceived by us (humans) at the emotional instinctive level. Thus I think blue colour helps to make people more happy and to cure them physically and mentally. The more I feel inspired by every day reality around me the more energy I get to create my imaginative painting. For instance, I find it boring just to copy nature. I prefer to add something from my imagination. So, what is my painting about? It is a symbolic painting where... ‘Venus’ and ‘Christmas window’ symbolize bliss. ‘Neptune’, Milky Way’, ‘Twilight’ symbolize perpetual motion and ‘Golden Autumn’ and ‘Fox’ embody intuition. By the way I exhibit Cosmos and landscape images together as I feel at home in the world, and it more than takes care of me…
