Over the summer I worked on exploring and experimenting with composition and colour, sharing very little with others and trying to ride the ‘production wave’ to the max. Now that winter is around the corner I’ve slowed down and took this as an opportunity to reflect. I’ve finished over 20 new paintings, which look like an entirely new body of work. Most of it is abstract and is quite different to what I used to do a year ago.Read More
What I do for a living is very strange. I spend hours creating semi abstract images on paper that reflect moments and feelings. Sometimes inspiration hits hard and I start getting ideas out of nowhere in my mind and the urge to put it on paper is a priority. The past few weeks where exactly that. I was so mesmerized by the blooming spring, although spring lasts about 15 minutes nowadays it was enough time to take it all in and produce fresh work.
For those of you who might be visit Saint Petersburg, you can pop into an amazing place called Demetra Art Hotel, aside from being a heritage building and a romantic getaway spot, they have my new collection hanging in their art gallery for display until August. Thank you guys!
Over the past year I’ve discovered for myself a new way of painting, which involves working on paper rather than canvas. I’ve grown found of it and developed a strong level of comfort doing so. Working on paper rather than canvas is somehow less fragile and there is an element of lightness to it and the results look more effortless.
I also realized that my work is both about thinking and feeling at the same time. Drawing is mostly thinking, where i plan the shapes out and overall composition. Colour is mostly intuitive and depends a lot on the mood and feelings of the moment. Learning to switch between thinking and feeling at the right time is a recipe for success!
Conceptually, I'm still very much drawn to various feminine images, incorporating fashion elements and trends into my recent series, creating a body of work with a unified aesthetic.
Special thanks to Sokos hotel in Saint Petersburg for showcasing my most recent works at your premises this weekend.
