Presentation

I was born in Russia and graduated from the Faculty of Art of Krasnodar State University in 1987. I have been professionally engaged in painting since 1991. Having participated in more than 30 exhibitions and Art Fair my works are now represented in private collections in Russia, Germany, Norway, Italy, Switzerland, Denmark, USA, France, Belgium, South Africa and United Kingdom. I became a member of the Union of Russian Artists in 1995 and I am a laureate of the Culture and Art scholarship of Krasnodar Region Administration. Since 2004 I live and work in Belgium. 

I paint still life compositions in oil. Observing solely from life I aspire to capture the movement of light as it reveals both the object and the surrounding, creating a sense of serenity quiet. The search for balance and harmony in the composition is vitally important for me. The objects in my still lifes can be often very usual and simple: jugs, fruits, bowls or flowers. It's wonderment about things and visual information that l want to strengthen in my works. I invite the viewer to re-enchanting by the world around us, to discover the short but really precious moments of life. Seizing the incredible beauty of life is my deepest vocation.                                                                                  The traditional Dutch 17th century painting has inspired me because of its delicate and balanced approach to light, shadow and color nuances. I do mainly use a multi-layered technique. Even if their process is slow and complex, it makes it possible to accentuate light effects, various textures and, last but not least, transparency.
