ABOUT

Born in the USSR, and raised in a creative family - of father an artist-designer and mother a weaver, I was surrounded by patterns and bright colours of the carpets and hand-made things. First I studied music, but only later when I came to England I wanted to draw and paint.

STATEMENT

My painting process involves several approaches. In the studio I surround myself with several paintings and work on them at the same time. I work on trying out new forms, colour combinations and mark-making. I am drawn to colour and explore its endless possibilities. I apply colour in a patchwork way, putting colours across the surface - overlapping, interplaying, pressing against each other, and piling up - and trying to explore how colours contrast with each other. I react or respond to the surface and format of the canvas or paper, and other materials.
Through painting I can express the aesthetics of reality and my perception of it. I want to evoke and create something that a composer can create with music. I am expressing what I feel about nature, the atmosphere, and my surroundings.
