This Artwork is done in a new technique, on textured paste so that the pumpkins get texture. As all my Artworks, it's a fabulous Pumpkins. It is a miracle about how an amazing fruit grows out of small seeds after a long wait and reverent care. Now it is ripe, full of sun and juice.
This artwork is dedicated to the Greatness of the Elements before which human is weak and helpless. I was always admired by the Power and at the same time the Beauty of the weather phenomena. Changes are coming. Some people do not like changes, but this changes is for good. This one will wash away old dust and instead bring a life-giving moisture, fresh breathing, new life and new hope.
As I said, it was not easy, but it turned out that it's harder not to draw. Therefore, I bring to your attention my new work, the first one drawn in America.
A year ago, I told to the buyers of my paintings that I can not part with my paintings, because I need them. My fear was that if I sell all the paintings, I'll be in a situation where I do not have it and it will be equivalent to start everything over again...
And so, with the relocation, I could not take with me any of my paintings and even all of my paints and an easel and even my favorite books. Now I have a new easel, exactly the same as at home (because it's made in China), new paints, and here's my new workplace. I like my new workplace very much! So, let's start everything over again...
:) :) :)
P.S. It's a pity that there is no smiley-face with twitching left eye.
Collaborative project Fashion + ART
Work with Lilia Poustovit - famous Ukrainian fashion designer, at the "Ukrainian Fashion Week, 20 Years" country scale Project.
Quadriptych "Fashion Seasons":
1. Spring, 2. Summer, 3. Autumn, 4. Winter.
Oil on canvas
39.4 x 29.6 inches / 100 x 70 cm, 2017
We wear clothes according to the weather and season. So the idea of the Artwork is Four Seasons of Nature. That's why I decided to divide it on four equal Parts: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
For each part of Artwork I used different color gamuts which symbolize each Season. The prints of Lilia Poustovit collection 2017 were used for decoration of fabrics. And I used the architectural elements of the Old and New city of Kyiv (Ukraine). For the image of the architectural elements I used the texture paste so this elements on my Artwork are volume. It was interesting for me to connect Four Parts.
In spring of 2018 this work was sold on National Auction.
Took part in the "Ukrainian Fashion Week, 20 Years" country scale Project. It was a great experience!
