Artist's Statement
" "
Silk painting has been a primary fascination for me over the last several years. I enjoy exploring the diverse effects that come when I apply paint to silk. This, further, sparks my creativity. My works are the mixture of abstraction and reality which reflects my particular experiences in life.

Some of my works focus on nature and are inspired by landscapes, both Russian and American. I am touched by the remembrance of forests, fields, rivers and small countries in Russia. I am inspired, too, by the beautiful lakes, mountains and shore lines in America. All these themes interconnect in my work and are sources for my art.

Other works, my still lifes, portray the beauty of plant and flowers, their forms and colors. Sometime I think of my work as a musical performance. I imagine that each flower, each leaf has its own voice and contribute to great song of life.

I am interested in composition, in arranging shapes and colors, in exploring the diversity of forms and structures. I find that silk painting is the best medium to do that. In this manner, I try to connect with the viewer through my work. I try to share the pleasure of discovering beauty in the world around me.
