Art Exhibition, Preko, Croatia

The exhibition Vanilla Sky.
The name of the exhibition was inspired by my travels to Hawaii island.
I was invited to the USA as an artist in residence on the Hawaii island for one month.
The range of climate and lifestyles is huge on that island. I was above the clouds in the mountain remote Buddhist Sanctuary, in various villages near the ocean, big cities and based near erupting Volcano villages.
In order to get the diverse feel of Island live I was offered a few days stay on the Vanilla farm in Waipio Valley. This is wild Rainforest and jungles surrounded by stip rocks and huge waterfalls connected to the ocean.
Were I was learning many things and among them how to pollinate Vanilla Flowers to facilitate the Vanilla seed growth. It was an exciting journey. I tried fresh cocoa beans and cava plant juice, met wild horses family in jungles, leaving in a cabin on tall legs attached to the rocks, I saw trees falling right beside me...

"Reflections", Exhibition of Oksana Veber Paintings, PREKO, POU Dom na žalu, Ugljan island, Croatia

Unutarnji svijet žena u apstrakcijama ruske slikarice Oksane Veber
Autor: A.L. u Uto, 08/08/2017 - 11:21

PREKO – Oksana Veber, ruska slikarica koja je često progovarala kroz ženske portrete, i na najnovijoj izložbi pod nazivom „Refleksije“ predstavlja se iznimno kolorističnim apstrakcijama u čijoj se pozadini naziru ženski likovi. 
Četrdeset i tri slike, ulja i akrilna boja na platnu, nastale u protekle dvije godine na otoku Ugljanu, premijerno je u ponedjeljak navečer izložila u galeriji Dom na žalu u Preku jer je otok, prema vlastitu priznanju, mjesto njezina najvećeg mira, inspiracije i ravnoteže.
Iako izlaže diljem Europe, sa stalne londonske adrese najradije se vraća na otok Ugljan, u Kukljicu, koja je na neki način postala njezino duhovno utočište.
- Svaka slika može se iščitati na svoj način, ovisno o kutu gledanja i osobi koja je promatra. U pozadini većine ovih slika su ženski portreti koji su odraz nekih mojih stanja, kroz njih ja progovaram pa tako možemo reći i da svaki portret ima elemente autoportreta. Željela sam prikazati emocije, unutarnji svijet, impresije žene u današnjem svijetu, u 21. stoljeću. Ženski svijet gledan iz različitih aspekata. To mi je vrlo važno!, objašnjava slikarica te ističe kako je osim „ženskog pisma“ zanima i suodnos prirode i urbanog te uloga pojedinca u tome.
- Željela bih da usporimo, da promatramo život oko sebe, učimo iz te prirode koja uvijek ima neku dobru priču za nas, poručuje.
Dio ljeta provodi u Hrvatskoj, na otoku Ugljanu, i to radno jer je okruženje iznimno motivira i nadahnjuje.
- Ovdje osjećam dobru energiju, puna sam elana i planova za budućnost tako da ljeto provodim radno, ali to ne osjećam kao muku nego kao opuštanje. Na otoku imam idealne uvjete za rad: nevjerojatnu tišinu i mir. Ovdje mogu nesmetano slušati klasičnu glazbu, posebno operu, šećem šumom, bavim se jogom…, kaže.
Oksana Veber umjetnica je međunarodnog ugleda i značaja, rođena je u Altaju, u Rusiji. Akademiju likovnih umjetnosti završila je u Kijevu. Tijekom razvijanja svoga slikarskog stila, koristila se raznim tehnikama, od akvarela na papiru, tradicionalne tehnike na bazi ulja na platnu, akrila na platnu…
Raspon tema, motiva i stilova Oksane Veber vrlo je širok, od krajobraza do portreta, a uključuje grafički, modni i virtualni dizajn. Poznata je po portretima dame u ekstravangardnim šeširima.
Prije desetak godina Oksana Veber kao članica jedne likovne kolonije došla je prvi put na Ugljan, izlagala je u Kukljici, Preku, Zadru, diljem Europe, u SAD-u... O njezinu radu na otvorenju izložbe govorili su Mladenka Mašina i Venko Mavar.
Nakon Preka, slike s izložbe „Refleksije“ bit će postavljene u galerijama Londonu i Pragu, a u Domu na žalu mogu se razgledati do 21. kolovoza, svaki dan od 20 do 22.30 sati.

Inside look into my art methods, techniques.

Dear visitors,

I have something to tell you today. It will be an inside look into the art methods, techniques, that I use.

When Elena, the VIEW gallery manager, asked me to write about my art techniques, I started to panic. 

As much I as I love painting, usually I did not enjoy writing about it. She said that the gallery visitors would love to learn more about the technique the artist uses.

However, I will give my best attempt to describe the processes going. Let see how it will go.

I used to paint in the all the possible art and non-art materials and also did the huge stain glass projects earlier in Soviet Era in Ukraine.

My first exhibition abroad in Denmark Copenhagen was all in watercolour on paper technique.

Then while living in the Prague Czech Republic I completely focused on oil-based painting materials.

I used the traditional technique, based on the realism oil painting style, which we have been taught. It was the oil on canvas or card paintings. 

Then I started to develop my own technique which is the combination of the pointed etching needles and oil colours on a special durable card. This gives me the great texture of scratched drowning deeply or gently filled with an oil paint which is contrasting to the oil glossy and smooth card structure. 

I prefer to use the Rembrandt and St Peterborough oils, which are highly transparent and can be layered after they get dry as many times as I need to create special multilayer finish.

The goal is to get the colour layers be translucent and shine through.

For the base, before I get to the actual painting, I use a special acrylic ground and number of acrylic texture pastes which I could apply freely by pallet knifes in various ways.

I use a lot of the mix of linen oil with varnish and turpentine oil for diluting the oil paint. This mixture allows the paint not dry so quickly and give time to work with it to adjust when necessary. This gives me desired semi covering each other layers of the thin oil paint. 

The painting process is never the same, there is always room for improvisation and experiment with non-traditional materials and instruments.

For example, sometimes I use a sandpaper or metal wire brushes to create special effects on the surface of a painting. I used various imprinting effects made by a pressure against the painting surface from shapes in wood or plastic, or in broken glass.

Hope this description can provide a brief look into the kitchen of artistic processes.

Please feel free to ask any questions. 

I would gladly answer on all of them.

Kind regards

Oksana Veber

The Oksana Veber story.

The Oksana Veber story.


The Oksana Veber story.
Oksana Veber is an artist of international reputation and rare distinction. Originally from Barnaul, in the Altaj, above the snow line on the Russian border with Mongolia, China and Kazakhstan, she hails from one of the most politically and geographically isolated corners of the modern world.
Of her childhood she remembers the intense cold, which lasted most of the year. Her grandfather would tunnel through the Siberian snow from the house to reach the street, the stables or the sauna, and she would hollow out ice caves, where she imagined herself as characters from the Tales of Hoffman or Hans Christian Andersen. Summers were spent collecting mushrooms and berries, or feeding the wild 'unicorns' in the forest, as the Siberian Taiga burst into life for a few short weeks before the snow buried the village again.
No sensible person would choose to live in these conditions, and in fact the Vebers are not from Siberia, but from Brandenburg, outside Berlin. During the Russian occupation of Eastern Germany the KGB abducted the entire Veber family to Kosiha in the Siberian Gulag. Oksana's grandparents, Karl and Ida, and Ida's mother Elise, were each sentenced to fourteen years' hard labour, and were released only in 1956 in a regime latterly exposed by Alexander Solzhenitsyn in The Gulag Archipelago. Karl and Ida, on their release, settled nearby in the village of Sosnovka, on the River Ob, where, as former political prisoners and as Germans, they were now ostracized by their neighbours, and soon after Karl was sentenced to another 25 years.
Karl never expected to survive, or see Ida again, and indeed had three more children in the Gulag with another political prisoner. Karl and Ida's two sons, Willy and Rudolph, were also born and raised in the Gulag, yet both were very ambitious, and they now moved to Barnaul in pursuit of higher education. Willy later married Praskovia, from Ukraine, and Oksana was born soon after. At the same time Praskovia's father had died in the war and Praskovia's mother also died giving birth to Praskovia, her thirteenth child. Praskovia's brothers and sisters then raised Praskovia and such was their determination to succeed. that this family of children also moved to Siberia, indeed Barnaul, for the educational and cultural opportunities which were now emerging in the region. Thus the two families finally met.
Oksana was a child prodigy, in the Russian tradition, from the beginning. From a specialist art school at the age of 9, she then went to Bryansk Art College at age 14, where she graduated. As a student she was coerced into working for the KGB, who gave her a diploma on account of her uncanny ability to produce accurate portraits from verbal descriptions of persons of interest. On graduation she was immediately admitted into the Artists' Union of Ukraine, where her professional career instantly took off with monumental commissions for public buildings and state and international institutions, which she managed from conception to completion from the age of nineteen.
Oksana's work is wide ranging, from landscape to portrait to still life, and also includes graphic, fashion and stained glass design. Today she sells in 43 jurisdictions, from Shang Hai to Los Angeles, and she is particularly noted for her signature portraits of ladies in extravagant hats, often bare breasted and surrounded by cats, sailing boats, birds and horses, alongside the resident swans of her beloved Prague. Of these many characters which populate her canvases she says:
'….. the ladies feed the cats and the cats protect the ladies, but all my characters seem to symbolize the pursuit of freedom. I saw my parents coerced by the KGB into joining the Communist Party, for fear of losing their jobs, and I experienced the same rampant corruption myself. The veil which separates us from chaos is very thin and threatens to tear at any moment. Some of my artist friends are in jail in Russia today for their opinions, and when I arrived in the UK, in 2007, for my first exhibition here, I was shocked to hear English friends laugh at politicians, the police and the Royal Family in a manner which is completely unthinkable in the former Soviet Union. Only now did I begin to see that real creative freedom of expression was possible....'
Oksana has known hardship and prejudice only too well and it is surely the quest for freedom that we find distilled and concentrated in her canvasses, both in her subject matter and in her paramount painterly technique. This is her unique contribution and importance as an artist, and her work is surely deserving of the widest possible recognition and acknowledgement in this regard. Oksana's work can be viewed at:

Oksana Veber paintings exhibition in Zelena Punta, Ugljan, Croatia.

                         Oksana Veber paintings exhibition in Zelena Punta, Ugljan, Croatia.

My name is Oksana Veber and I am an artist and painter. I would like to invite you to my exhibition.

I have been exhibiting every year in Croatia since 2005, mostly in Zadar and on Ugljjan, including Ancient Glass Museum and Pucko Otvoreno Uciliste.

I returned this year expecting to paint as usual but was delighted when Alena Havlova 

of SARGAS SRO Tourist Agency in Pisek, Czech Republic, who was also staying in Zelena 

Punta, asked me to exhibit for her clients. Suddenly we had a lot of work to do, to get the exhibition together, and I would like to thank Zdravko Kvito, General Manager at Zelena Punta, and also the dancer and fellow painter Danny Israel, for their help in putting the exhibition together at very short notice. The opening night of the exhibition was accompanied by beautiful singer Miriam Pelcova and her jazz band from Czech Republic.

The exhibition has proved extremely popular with visitors and you too are very welcome! 

We are in the large hall above the Reception at Zelena Punta. The exhibition will be open until 10th of October from 8 am till 9 pm and everyone is very welcome, indeed I would love to meet you. I will be there in person so if you want to meet the artist, come along! I will be delighted to answer any questions you may have about my painting.
