Artist Statement

I am a contemporary Canadian/Russian artist with a background in a Master’s in Fashion Design. My work focussed on the unapologetic sense of wonder that Nature and life create in me. The inspiration came from organic, even seductive shapes that Nature and the female body have in common. They both are places of nurturing and unity. Observing Nature translates through the language of contemporary landscape in my practice. The surprising power behind the softer shape, its vulnerability, and its strength excite me. I would say that vibrant colors and femininity are core elements of my creative voice and signature. I’ve been painting for over 30 years and creating because it is my way of living. Engaging in painting gives me a sense of belonging to something bigger than me, to the Feminine Divine of Nature. My painting usually starts intuitively, allowing my subconscious to lead the conversation through color. Observation and logic take place later. Intuitive and logical, subconscious and analysis is a process I repeat through creating artwork. It is almost like a therapy session with myself. My paintings are multi-layered with a lot of texture from thick brushwork, deliberate acrylic skins, and heavy gel mediums. I hope that viewers will share the sense of love and compassion I learn from Mother Nature and create emotional bonding with people we love, starting with ourselves. I am probably the first generation of women that aging in digital time created an opportunity to be visible, not to be dismissed by society to assigned traditional roles of grand motherhood or dismissed sex appeal. Aging gave me certain freedom of expression, where I am stripped of necessity to please, to fit in. My work has apparent differences in style, content, or even technique. The common thread that remains the same-it is the power of intimacy.

Artist Statement

Painting is a physical and emotional necessity for me. From a deep concern for the state of our planet to the beauty of simple objects, there is no mundane subject matter. I strive to preserve the joyful and innocent view of the world that children have, their feeling of passion and splendor. Through the colors and textures of my work, I hope to engage the viewer and draw out a sense of wonder. My inspiration comes from within; I am still somewhat surprised by what moves my hand toward the canvas, what touches my soul and makes my heart skip a beat.

My paintings always start with emotion and progress in an intuitive rather than a methodical way. At times, I am so captured with the way paint behaves on the canvas, that I allow it to lead me to a magical world. I love to experiment with different media such as poured paint, collage of found objects, or acrylic skin. I can even get lost in the scents of oil painting. The technical necessity of paint drying forces me to work on 2-3 pieces at the same time. This gives me a chance to distance myself from each painting for a while and observe how it takes on a life of its own. Generally, this process takes about a month to finish, however, I love to come back to old work and continue a conversation, interact with the canvas like trying to catch up with an old friend.
