Grey-eyed king

Glory to you, inescapable pain!
The gray-eyed king died yesterday.

The autumn evening was sultry and red,
My husband returned and quietly said:

'You know, they brought him back from the hunt,
They found his corpse by the old oak tree.

I pity the queen. He was so young! ..
In just one night her hair turned white.'

He found his pipe on the mantelpiece
And went out to his nighttime shift.

I'll go and wake my daughter now,
I'll look into her little gray eyes.

While outside the rustling poplars say:
'Your king is no longer upon this earth…'

In my art  I try to depict  things that exist beyond physical  tangible substances. Being a professional interior architect, I transfer my passion for  inner space balance  into my art.  What becomes important  is inner feelings, emotions, mood of a person. In my imagination I travel around the world of absolutely untamed emotions, whether calm or hysterical, but sincere, trying to give them physical expression through shapes and colors. 

Profound motivation is in creating connections with the viewers, these connections become important and potentially significant for both parties. Like donors' blood, my artwork "saves" the viewers.  Infusing  with emotions, it reminds them of the human ability to feel.  As a donor of emotion, I'm being revitalized myself through this process again and again with each artwork. Cultivating beauty and creativity is part of my essence.

My love for diverse artistic styles, embedded in me through absorbing European culture, captivated by minimalism, as well as my native Russian and Tatar cultures, rich in decor and colors,  splashes  out on canvases in various ways. Working with acrylic paints, I employ a bold color palette, fluid style gives some abstraction to my realistically rendered portraits and elaborated patterns. 

I teach by day and paint by night. Some paintings are spontaneous and take just few night hours to create, some are - results of thorough and extensive mental process. But all of them come from a lifelong accumulation of my personal emotional experiences as a result of encounters with amazing destinies.
