Summer scents #2 (2020)
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.
