Paintings

"Angel"

Year of Creation: 2018
Material: Oil on Canvas
Size: 60*80 cm

   Many of my works are inspired by the works of my favorite artists. And this work is no exception. Colors of the Ukrainian flag, Boychukivzi stylistics, a female image and layered oil painting: this work is inspired by the works of my dear friend, Ukrainian artist Anna Didenko.

"True Power"

Year of Creation:2019
Material: Oil on Canvas
Size: 60*80 cm

   This artwork is inspired by Egyptian iconography, and is a collective image of Cleopatra and Nefertiti, who are the ancient embodiment of modern feminists. Besides the obvious, there are hidden the Egyptian patterns, symbols of world order and power. 
   The symbol of Nefertiti herself, is hidden, as well as the hidden symbol of God himself. As a human being, dutifully crouching beside him, this is an angel who has retracted her wings.

"Levitation"

"Hug"

Year of Creation:2018
Material: Acrylic on Canvas
Size: 20*30 cm

   Inspired by works of Gustav Klimt, this picture depicts a sacred moment for any couple. What could be more innocent, but at the same time more intimate than hugging.
   The picture, filled with bright colors, conveys a flash of energy at the moment of the touch of the bodies. The union of two souls, which at this moment merge into one.

"The Moon"

Year of Creation:2016
Material: Oil on Canvas
Size: 50*70 cm

   What do you see? This picture is full of mysticism and symbolism. The eclipsing of the moon, the coming of the night in a twilight city, the girl holding the sun in her hands? She caught it or she lets it go.       Abstract, but full of symbolism and figures, is a kind of experiment in the search for personal artistic style.

"Ukraine"

Year of Creation:2017
Material: Oil on Canvas
Size: 50*70 cm

   This work is dedicated to my homeland. The girl is a symbolic image of Ukraine. Her hair symbolises wheat, our main produce. The combination of cadmium and umber is a symbol of the fertile land and the golden strands in her hair symbolizes Ukraine’s natural wealth.
   Unfortunately, Ukraine is in a very sad state, poor despite all the wealth of the earth and natural resources. This image is made in the style of Orthodox Christian iconography, which is the national religion of Ukraine.

"Ra"

Year of Creation:2018
Material: Acrylic, Gold imitation on Canvas
Size: 50*70 cm

   Just like my favorite artist, Klimt, I drew my inspiration from one of the most ancient cultures, Egypt. Ra, the main Egyptian god, is also a symbol of the sun. I depicted him in his classical form. I supplemented it with gold elements and various patterns, while following the traditional color scheme.

"Africa"

Year of Creation:2018
Material: Oil on Canvas
Size: 70*90 cm

  I created this work after a trip to Africa, inspired by the work of very talented local artists. Most of all I was impressed with the beautiful nature and cultural traditions. I created an image of a woman who in a traditional but unusual way has extended her neck with rings.  I used a palette of warm colours that closely associates with the warm African sun. At the same time, the image conveys piece and humility.

  The patterns are dynamic and the composition is built on the principle of the golden section.

"World around me"

World around me

Year of Creation:2019
Material: Acrylic on Canvas
Size: 90*80 cm

   This picture is filled with images from the world around me. In it you can find the elements from my other paintings.

   When creating it, I painted what was around me: other canvases hanging on the walls, fruits in a bowl on the table, leaves of plants on the windowsill, my baby sleeping in a cot. All of them are mixed in a complicated abstract expressionism with pastel colors.

"Consciousness"

Year of Creation:2019
Material: Oil on Canvas
Size: 80*100 cm

   Part of my psychological series of works, this picture is a complex combination of symbols. There are several ways to interpret the ideas in this painting. While creating a sketch for this piece, I was trying to concentrate on the flow of my consciousness. 
   One idea is a reunion of consciousness and subconsciousness. Faces are a depiction of consciousness in the center, surrounded by a display of doubt and intuition, with the subconscious mind within us. Another interpretation is a person and his/her conscience with good and evil on both sides.

"Treasure"

Treasure small

Year of Creation:2019
Material: Oil on Canvas
Size: 80*100 cm

   Like "Ukraine" this picture is dedicated to my homeland. With cadmium and umber as symbols of the fertile land and the girl symbolizing Ukraine. The jug that she holds is a vessel filled with the goodness of the Ukrainian land, which has been wasted for years have been without benefit to the people.

"Meditation"

Meditation small

Year of Creation:2017
Material: Acrylic on Canvas
Size: 70*90 cm

   Recently, I became interested and fascinated by meditation and psychology and this painting is one of the results.

   I started by painting a background in an intuitive, expressive manner, and then found and highlighted a shape of a meditating person in the middle. A person who finds an internal balance and has full body control. The colour palette shows the connection with the Universe. And the mind sends signals to the outside world.

"In your Mind"

In your mind

Year of Creation:2019
Material: Acrylic on Canvas
Size: 60*80 cm

   As a person who interested in meditation and psychology, I have depicted the mental flow within me. Meditation is all about concentration, and the ability to observe the present, without becoming lost in thought.
   I enjoy meditating outdoors, in nature. To show this connection with nature the girl’s hair is in the shape of a tree bark, and the predominant color is green.

"Love to Aivazovsky"

Klimt's Abstraction

Year of Creation:2018
Material: Acrylic on Canvas
Size: 50*70 cm

   This abstract painting is inspired by one of my favorite painters, Gustav Klimt. Having finished my studies, I searched for a long time for artistic inspiration.

   This work is my creative experiment and interpretation of one of his works inspired by his love of Egyptian culture. The girl and the color scheme of this painting is the embodiment of the night.
