Being a third generation artist of my family, I was always
surrounded by the art pieces that were beautiful and sincere, that determined
my perception of life. Since childhood the process of self-expression through the
painting became a natural necessity that fills my life with a sense of harmony
and integrity. The world around me is the sours of inspiration that transforms
in my mind in a positive massage of my every piece of art.
paintings display and dignify natural beauty which too often we fail to notice
in fast changing life. In my artworks I reveal the hidden significance of the
details. Final painting is not my
only purpose. Though, the composition depends on the content, I have never seen a completed
piece of art starting to paint. My every painting is the process of
exploring, experimenting, and pushing the limits. When the process of creation is going the
different way I have planed making sketches, I am reminded that artist’s
inspiration ruled by the “other” force and I am just its instrument. Fallowing
to my hand I use the sudden hints occurred by medium or color. Sometimes just
the only one brush stroke can change the composition, painting style or the
mood of the painting. The primary aspiration of my work is a piece of
art whose effect of meaning is achieved through a compositional balance of
color, light, shadow and harmony of forms.
In my early paintings I follow the best traditions of both Russian and
European representational painting, where the landscape and still-life
in oil were the basic genres of my art work.Now my technique and color style have
been changed under the influence of the Canadian Art traditions. Though, oil paintcontinues
to intrigue me with its possibilities, I also turned to acrylic with its
endless capacities. Currently I work on the series of the cityscapes and still-lifes in
mix-medium, pushing myself through the new challenges and experiments to realize the new ideas.
