About Irene Makarova
There are no upcoming events
Hello! My name is Irene Makarova, and I am a professional artist from Moscow (Russia). Painting is my daily occupation and my passion.
My paintings are figurative, I like to work with oil and open colours. Each colour appeals to its own emotions and has its internal sound.
I'm inspired by the artworks of the artists of the Russian avant-garde of the early twentieth century and some paintings of German expressionists. Also, I love Bosch, Giotto, El Greco, Modigliani.
About my paintings and creative themes:
I love travelling and painting the beautiful nature of different countries, but now the focus of my work is paintings with the plots that are born inside me through observing and experiencing the life around me. I also draw inspiration from the deep mythology of various countries and cultures.
I work with the transfer of meanings through visual forms. I want to convey the essence of things, ideas, feelings directly. My task as an artist is to talk about eternal truths in modern language and to discover new meanings. In my paintings, I want to express the connection of art with the things that cannot be expressed in words, and with the invisible, that is hidden behind the usual visible around us. For me, genuine art is a direct and very accurate hit in a non-verbal space. This is a mix of depth and height. I think that real art is what helps a person become and remain a Human. I want my paintings to help a person tune in to his own meanings, to come to his own deep states and experiences.
